Winds change with altitude and location, so what is a 30-knot crosswind 4 miles from the runway at 2,000 feet may end up being a 5-knot headwind over the runway. I would like to know if I should gradually reduce my wind correction.
Or you could just look at the runway to see your drift. I am of course assuming is it's VMC.

I know right, don't even get me started on the whole coriolis effect.

Exactly. You see what's happening to the airplane, then you react to it. It's more spontaneous.

If you get a wind-check, then you have an idea as to what to expect, and you can plan. Planning is fine and all, but anticipation almost always ruins the surprise.

Fly fresh, fly free, fly in the moment.

Wind = Additional or loss thereof of Energy. Energy expounded on wind check? Pun or no?

GJ

P.S. I guess we're all "tools" at heart.

I'm a tool because everyday I check Herman's wife's website to see if the angrypilotwife updated her blog. Herman, crack that whip. No update since the 22nd. Unacceptable man!!

Passengers (and sometimes drew) who take up the entire width of escalator or walkway and don't move over no matter how many people are lined up behind him/her.

People who stop and/or stand in the middle of concourses

I couldn't agree more. They're soooo abundant... they especially frequent the Concourse C/B moving walkway in ORD. Ya know, the one with all the neon lights and such... baghh.

+1

Those are for moving people long distances (like 747 wingspan distances)when they're in a hurry. If they installed them for people to stop and rest, there would be chairs on them. Like the cripple carts.

Stopping on a moving walkway for 30 seconds will cost your journey the same amount of time as stopping in the middle of the hallway for 30 seconds; difference being that people can go around you if you stop in the middle of the hallway.
