Captain Posted July 19, 2008 Share Posted July 19, 2008 Not sure whether this thread should have been in "Weather" or "Incidents & Accidents - About to happen". Below is the Area weather around here today. If that was a ride in a theme park I'd be the 1st to whack my money down, so have any of you ever flown an RAA aircraft in conditions like this? And if so, ................. what's it like? Or am I & others just being wimps not heading straight up to above 8000? Regards Geoff (with tongue in cheek, & heart in stomach) PS Will make it interesting for the poor buggers trying to fly their displays at the Temora Aviation Museum today. They deserve better. 16:28 UTC, 19/07/2008 AREA FORECAST 191700 TO 200500 AREA 22. OVERVIEW: ISOLATED SEVERE TURBULENCE BELOW 8000FT [REFER SIGMET]. ISOLATED RAISED DUST E OF HRD/YHAY AFTER 23Z.
