You won't need an aircraft to get airborne...

Not to turn this into a pissing contest, but not uncommon in Australia during cyclone season.

Definitely don't want a pissing contest with those winds.

An alternate would be required ?

Not to turn this into a pissing contest, but not uncommon in Australia during cyclone season.

The strongest wind gust recorded on the Australian mainland is 267 km/h. The gust was recorded during cyclone Vance at 11:50 am (WST) 22 March 1999 at Learmonth Meteorological Office, 35 km south of Exmouth.

Wind gusts of 259 km/h at Mardie and 246 km/h at Onslow were measured during cyclone Trixie in February 1975.

By ‘ not uncommon’ do you mean ‘pretty much never and certainly not on the populated mainland’?

In 50 years never seen 200kts forecast anywhere - seen the odd typhoon around Asia.

krismiler 2nd Sep 2019 10:52

Cyclone Tracy, which devastated Darwin in Christmas 1974, recorded a 217 km/hr maximum wind speed before the anemometer failed. Given the scale of the destruction it was likely much higher.

I guess the port has been freed by now?

hmmm, Iíve never seen 200kt in a TAF in Oz in the last 20 + years. Yasi was estimated at ďonlyĒ 300kmh.

Weíve got enough biggest, most poisonous, longest records. We donít need to make up more.

I'd stick an extra ton on in case there's some holding.
