And it hasnít been helped by the south easterly wind all day with up to 15kts TW landing on 35?

Can QF 73s and Dash 8s land with more than 10kts of tail wind?

The other issue worth considering is that the pyrocumulonimbus clouds donít show up on the weather radar. And if youíre descending in thick smoke - youíre every chance to fly straight into one. Which would be no fun at all!
