Turkish Airlines Domestic Haul

Recommended Posts

THY1007(LTAR-LTBJ) rolls in front of wavering flags departing Sivas Airport on a 490NM run to Izmir and stormy skies ahead.  About 60 miles outside of Izmir the plane encountered severe turbulence, so I checked the OPUS weather popup and sure enough I had moderate wind shear, cumulonimbus clouds and lightning(the lightning was obvious without the popup B) ).  I really had to ride the speed brake hard pretty much all the way in.  The amazing thing was neither the passengers nor the FO complained once about it :lol:

Thanks fellas!  It's a roll of the dice on weather Steve-O and I've been having my share of "less than favorable conditions" more often than not lately.  The approach into Izmir was probably the bumpiest I've ever had.  I wonder how the big green machine would have handled that turbulence?
