Hi everyone 124 kt winds across Southern Queensland into Northern New South Wales as I start my descent into Sydney from Hong Kong 🤪 enjoy your flight if you are around here buckle up
The usual there
Ok 128 knots now
I’ve had around 200kt winds across the Atlantic before. This is nothing 😎
Once experienced 270kts in the South Western Pacific(just North East of Auckland) ;)
Enjoy the winds though.
Approaching my record now at 140 my record is 155
You must have been sideways 😂
It was actually a nice tailwind. I spent less than 2h doing Auckland-Rarotonga(Cook Islands). But on the trip back, this time non-stop to Sydney, I had to continue westbound all the way to Fiji to avoid the strong winds. All this on an A320.
Oh ok that’s some wind speed in a small aircraft ! This 787-9 is amazing a slight wave action only and dawn on the eastern seaboard coming soon so nice end to this flight. @Kiz
The 150s up
ok, the winds are absolutely NUTS right now, and so is the auto-throttle, I’m in a 787 right now, so you can imagine the wings😂
