Hello Infinite Flight Commity! Earlier today, I hosted my 70° North Flyout at Tromsø airport. Unbeknownst to me, the Northern areas of Norway were extremely windy, with over 50kts of crosswind gusts! We decided to continue with the event despite the winds, but several of us had to abort takeoff along the way. Anyways, here are my photos of the madness that unfolded earlier.

This was definitely one of the craziest events I’ve hosted yet, but it was a fun one to spectate 😜. Thanks again to everyone who joined, and have a great rest of your day!
Which one is your favorite
