Wow... just- wow

So coming out at Heathrow cruising altitude is 30,000 feet then I suddenly get 117 knots of wind it’s just crazy for as long I have played IF I had never had this much turbulence

Sounds like you’re near the jet stream

If you departed Eastwards from Heathrow, there is a small gap of high winds or jet stream.

@Ecoops123 you are right, such topics are not informative and needed. It’s not only because this clogs up the forum but such jet streams happens very often, even on the English Channel, between Netherlands and Great Britain. Happens in most places really.

That’s a lot, nothing compared to the 143 knots I got yesterday over northeast England. 😳
