Throttle and wind speed going ham

So I was flying from Zürich to Reykjavik in an Iceland Air 757-200. I was on final ready to land when suddenly the wind and throttle went crazy.

Unfortunately I can’t show the video I recorded as it is not authorized. I took a screenshot which isn’t really helpful.

Device specs

  • Asus z500m
  • 4GB ram
  • Supports OpenGL 3.2
  • 32GB storage
  • Android version 6.0 (I can upgrade to 7.0)

It did stop for a bit but started again once I was under 1NM from the runway. It also caused me to spin out. I will see what happens when I do my next flight.

The throttle issue may have been caused by autothrottle attempting to maintain speed during the winds. Are you able to reproduce the issue? If not, it is possibly a single-time or METAR related issue

I don’t think it was the Autothrottle because before it had happens the winds were staying at the same speed

This is a known issue and will hopefully be fixed later on as it weren’t consistent. Usually happens when entering any airfields airspace during windy conditions.
