Waiting for better conditions...

Currently circling above EGYM in the London region, waiting for better wind conditions after two failed landing attempts. Took off from EGHH 1 hour and 8 minutes ago in a FlyBe Dash 8 Q400. Wind seems to get calmer, expecting another attempt in around 5 minutes.
Surrounding airports even report heavy gusts. Oh well…

Alright, making another attempt.

Shame! Another go?

No chance, the wind always blows me off the runway on short final.
One more go around and I’ll look for an airport to divert to.

What were the wind speeds at EGYM?


Sounds normal (?).

Usually, with better conditions, you’ll only earn around 200 XP for one take-off and landing.
