Great Clip  -   I have had several flight emergencies over the years but I'm sure I never sounded as cool as this guy.  He obviously has a few flight hours in his log book!

When we had that really windy day a few Fridays ago, one guy asked for a shot of whiskey (on the CD freq.) because countless airliners were going around...they sure sounded stressed!

Greg, what Friday was that?  The archives here have a much longer retention rate and assuming that the Dan the BUF feeder didn't lose power, there should be some good stuff in the BUF archive from that day.

Funny you should mention it...."Dan the Buff Feeder" actually prepared a clip from this very windy Friday but never posted it. I guess now is as good a time as any. If I remember correctly it was Friday December 1st between 3 or 4 pm untill about 11pm. Gust were over 50kts and a few aircraft needed 2 or 3 tries before landing. The pilot  of this Northwest flight 1128 is happy he is landing in Buffalo this night. Ouchy!

Peter,
  You must not have been in Buffalo that night or your Bonanza would have set a world speed record on your flight back to the East!

Thankfully, no.   Given that those winds and wind shear were forecasted days ahead of time, I would have made arrangements to leave prior to the worst of it hitting.   

As you know, forecasts can sometimes turn out worse than expected, which is why being proficient in flying a small aircraft with gusty winds is important.  One time last spring I landed in Buffalo with winds gusting to about 42 kts, but that was not by design.  Forecast and METAR for BUF prior to my departure were a more docile 20 kts gusting to 25 kts, but winds had picked up considerably in the hour and a half it took me to preflight and fly over to BUF.   

So far, the fastest groundspeed I have experienced in the Bonanza was about 230 kts, or about 265 mph and that was due to a 50 kt tailwind.   I suspect the winds aloft on that Friday, December 1st were much stronger than that.

Thanks, Dan, for the clip.  I am going to see if Dec. 1st is still in the archives here.  There might be more gems from that day awaiting discovery.

Dan,

I'm 16 years old. I'm an intern there. Yes i was there that night. Let me tell you, in addition to the winds, the transformers treated us to a spectacular fireworks show (mostly in Niagara County and to the north).

Give them a call at the TRACON (the tower is attached) and see if you can arrange one. You may need to talk to a supervisor, though, to arrange one.

If you arrange it for a Friday evening, you may run into me!
