Worst weather experience.

Your worst weather experience you have ever had in IF

What has been your worst Weather experience you have ever had in IF.
It can either be when you were landing or taking off.
Has it effected your flying to the point where you have to divert to another airport.

Important info

This has to include where what happened, what type of weather was it including winds, visibility etc. Although weather glitches do not count.

My worst experience with weather was when I was flying through 80kn winds in between KLAX and YMML it was a bit windy but the good thing is i was in a 787-9.

Sorry if this is a duplicate topic.

My worst weather experience is when I was about land at KSAN and a sudden increase in gust crosswind caused me to having to go around.

Ok i will edit it now

Yeah, sometimes I like a challenge, and besides the wind direction was fairly directed towards me, so the crosswinds werent that bad.

I have added weather glitches do not count into the important info. Thanks for the heads up.


This could go well :)
