This guy was the crown jewel of tools.
At least it's not a reflector belt

What about someone who posts on APC and basically admits they landed with a 20 kt tailwind. What a/c do you fly? Tailwind limits?

Not much point in asking for a wind check or using on board displays if you just end up ignoring them and landing anyway.

He might have mentioned it because the Delta people have been informed that pilots not wearing safety vests in ATL are not allowed on the ramp under any circumstances and if seen by the airport police will be issued summons that carry a substantial fine. He probably was trying to keep your bank account from taking a serious hit!
If they said no vests available tell them departure is not possible. I bet they would find a vest or borrow one.

Try yesterday in KDAL, when ATIS winds were something, but in reality they were something completely different. I asked for a wind check, twice, until they told me yeah looks like they are unreliable. We had a 20kts tailwind all the way down. They swapped runways after we landed.

So, I disagree wind check makes you a TOTD
Did you land with a 20 knot tailwind?

On what runway in ATL would you be conducting LAHSO? Iíve been there once or twice and donít remember any intersecting runways.
