Well you can definitely feel it on Infinite Flight! I had to go around on final to EGLL and then when I did land it was on the gray part before the actual runway and my wing hit the ground because of a strong gust.

Seems pretty bad! The weather around the world is pretty uncertain these days =/

Can’t imagine losses due to the delays caused by this storm

Tried T and G’s on Casual. Not recommended for TS or Exp if you value Violations.
No passengers were hurt but the cleaners had a hard time getting the A320 ready for the next flight

Yeah, the weather in London today has been terrible. I will definitely be going to the London region today :)

The winds here are about 40mph in real life but in London it could be worse.

It was pretty bad during lunchtime in North London. There was heavy rain and a bit of hail in the morning and at lunchtime break someone fell because of the wind. It also flipped a bin over and it hit a parked car

Just read the latest (1520Z) METAR for EGLL for real life, 24kts gusting to 40kt from 280…wow…

P.S It turns out that the METAR for EGBB reads 40kt gusting to 60 from 300 XD

Trying to walk home was not easy, took me 15 minutes longer than usual. Got a lot of debris blown at me too. Not fun 😂

It appeared quite bad at Manchester Airport at lunchtime, with stacks building up, flights going around, and some being diverted to Liverpool John Lennon or other nearby airports. Seems to be quite a bit better now.

Doris has been killing us down in Coventry/Bedworth.

It’s been horrible. You could literally feel our IT block rocking…

Still, I’m waiting for the storm E this year…

Not only IF users make mistakes with this weather. Not sure what happened though and if it’s even weather related. Just happened at Schiphol.

This was a landing gear collapse. No pilot error.

No offence but pls do research before blaming the pilots :)
