Strongest winds

Same but it was fun lol

does anyone know how to predict the winds? like in long haul flights can I predict the winds later when I go through different areas?

Windy.com is a great source

You can. Just need to play around with the slider and buttons. 🙂

I think I got around 145 in the Australian outback, I was trying out YSSY to EGLL and damn that crosswind sucked, thought about diverting somewhere in Europe but I never ended up doing that.

There was another time I got 130 in Dorian doing crosswind landings, that was fun 😂

Imgine because of the wind and you crash your plane when landing.

Got to almost 250 knots headwind near the end of Australia, doing the same flight, actually
