Default Aussie Hornets Crosswind Takeoff

Whilst doing anything not to revise for my exams I stumbled across this, the lead almost gets blown off! Enjoy

The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.

Very nice. I wish Hornet was released this year or at least in a beta stage.

Nice find, dont worry you are not the only one procrastinating at the moment!

I was going to say that doesnt look like Williamtown or Amberly. I dont think its albatross either. Definitely somewhere on the east coast but.

I'm going to say that's windy, but not 30-40 knots. Maybe 25.

The wind on the day was being reported as 30-40knots nearly all cross. This was at an air show south of Sydney. Only about 3 brave aviators ventured into the luft due crosswind another brave soles attempt just prior to the Hornets departure:

One blown tyre the result.

Yep - was a wild and windy day which in terms of watching an airshow was disappointing

Wow, now that's incredible. (In a BMS training session, they have a cross wind landing with the F-16, really scares the s*** outta ya coming in.... 30 knots or so)

But I give it to those Aussie pilot's, nice job with getting those birds off the ground.

Oof! You can really see it in the trees on that Sabre landing video. I take it back! Maybe not quite as bad for the Hornet departures anyway?
