A bit windy, innit?

TAF for Brize makes interesting reading today:

EGVN 290701Z 290909 19017G27KT 9999 SCT035
        TEMPO 1124 19025G38KT
        TEMPO 1114 7000 SHRA SCT022 BKN030
        BECMG 1417 RA BKN018
        TEMPO 1402 4000 SCT014
        BECMG 2302 23015G25KT 9999 NSW SCT025 PROB40
        TEMPO 0308 6000 SHRA BKN010CB

The runways at Brize are 08 / 26, so that’s a crosswind straight across the runway, of 17 knots gusting to 27 knots. The demonstrated crosswind for a Warrior is 17 knots.

Unless by some minor miracle the forecast is completely wrong, no flying for me today.

Oh well.

Fingers crossed for tomorrow.
