Now that's windy!

Recommended Posts

Edit: build 193I just installed the update last night and my first flight in the DC3 near Napoli was going fine until I turned final and noticed I was starting to crab.Boy did I crab. The wind at 600 ft was reading 099 at 99 kts. I turned into the wind and with full throttle was still accelerating backward. The GPS showed a groundspeed of 490 kias in reverse when the plane broke up.I had had not trouble at all with the previous build.Using 3.47 fsuipc (unregistered). Anyone else experiencing this?The metar at LIRI was showing a 14kt wind from the south, btw.BlairCYOW

Thanks JimIt does seem to be directly related to LIRI. I've flown a few flights in other areas today -- B.C., Germany-Netherlands -- and seen nothing odd, but descending into LIRI keeps producing the anomalous winds.Tends to mess up the approach when you get a 100 knot crosswind, lol. Just coincidence that the first time I ever experienced this was with the new build, I guess.Blair

Glad I'm not alone. I finally made some headway into the wind, but not until I'd switched to an F4 Phantom, lol.

The wind was at LIRI again today too when I tested it.One problem I've found is that the strange value seems to follow the aircraft around and can't be cleared even by using the fsuipc 'clear all weather' button.Once you've got it, you carry it with you (assuming your aircraft survives). Even if using 'go to airport' from the menu to go half war around the world, the 'wind' pesists, even after AS refreshes with the new airport's metar.
