Be careful at EHAM today. The wind conditions aren’t good.
32 kts crosswind with gusts.
I ended up like this.

The 717 is hard to control without winds.
Thanks for the heads up.

Seems like the heavy winds crossed the Atlantic.

I wanted to try the 717 again.
Going to do that in another location. :)

Good decision. Try Sydney.

I wouldn’t worry, I ended up far worse in high wind, in front of a mod.

And I was taking off.

Did a little trip round a hour or so ago, Wattisham, Lakenheath, Mildenhall, London City, Heathrow, Farnborough. All pretty much the same. It was quite hairy at times. :O

At EHAM you can always land into the wind thanks to its runway layout.


There were similar conditions at EGBB this evening, earned 400 XP for a 10 minutes flight!
