Most Stressful Flight

Hi IFC
Following on from:

I wanted to know what the most stressful flight for you was,

Factors to consider

  • Terrain

  • Heavy Traffic

  • Fuel remaining

  • Something like your device battery is going to run out

  • Your phone getting too hot

  • Weather

Last year there was an event at Heathrow with like 200 rivals and while 3 miles out from landing wind direction completely shifted during a 22kt cross wind

pgum to rjff in had 25knots of crosswind on landing

the most stressful flight is always when I get these ridiculous long circly vectors and ATC tells me to follow instructions or get reported

or when ATC tells me to descend to a stupidly low altitude and tells me to expedite rate of altitude change, and when I do it very slowly they make me continue going downwind until i have reached their altitude of 2000 feet when im 100 NM away from the airport then circle back flying at 2000 feet for 30 minutes

Landing will be a nightmare

Landing with only 100kg of fuel left…

Bergen almost always has some pretty bad weather

Wait…does an earthquake in reality have an effect on the game?

I flew with A320 to Paro yesterday and had 18 knots gusting to 26 knots. I didn’t go around, the landing was smooth but it was very stressing.

This just happened to me, areiving at a busy airport, busy following the atc instrustions when my parents calls me and tells me to get to the kitchen and grab something.

Real ATIS that has lines and lines and lines of weather

Flying a spitfire is worse than anything anyone has mentioned…
