    That's some colour scheme. I suppose there is no chance of anyone getting a photo of it on the ground in SNN?

    Not me anyway, not today :)

    To Shannon757,

    They seem to be as of late.

    There's no holding at DUB.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,355 ✭✭✭jimbis


    I'm aware of that. Landing bang on the minute in good weather is a challenge in itself never mind when there is bad weather and go arounds.


  • Registered Users Posts: 18,102 ✭✭✭✭JCX BXC


    Wind has calmed mostly since around 17:30.

    There's a Star Air going from Shannon to Dublin at the minute on FRadar.

    Does anyone know if this is scheduled or what? FR24 has a RYR pic against it.

    Maybe it's a diverted flight getting back or something.

    Cargo flight every weeknight.

    Apologies if I'm wrong but I'm nearly sure I told you before.
    Also it has a picture of a Star Air aircraft for me.

    Thanks,

    You could have told me before, but that would have been a long time ago. Don't post a lot, just enjoy the info.

    Maybe now that I've got a rap on the knuckles I'll go back to my bunker again. :(

    It wouldn't have been too long ago, and there's no need to be like that either, I didn't say it hostility.

    Do you still have the RYR pic?

    In fairness to Caracalla, he didn't come across to my way of thinking, as someone in "knuckle rapping mode". :)

    Star Air is the nightly UPS flight out of SNN to Dub, picks up extra bins and onto Cologne.

    DHL flight leaves at 9pm direct to EMA, at 12noon today DHL informed me SNN flight wouldn't leave due to weather so decided to take our freight from Galway to Dub to meet there, driver was close to Athlone @4pm when they decided to route him back to SNN as flight was back on, roll on 9pm and FR will tell me if I have hassle free day tomorrow :)

    Ok, truce. It must have been the way I read it.

    Anyway, that plane has landed now, and I'm just about to get me dinner! I wonder if Star Air has similar livery/colours to RYR. That might be where I made the mistake. Might need to go to specsavers.

    I'm also going to confession now. Three hail marys. :D

    Due weather? Someone hadn't checked the forecasts :P Wind Direction was spot on for SNN all day and not too bad for DUB.

    Strong winds was the reason given, thought it was a little premature at 12noon, we have approx 3/4 bins per night on that flight so they pay close attention to our shipments

    Lets all play nice. Not everyone here is fully up to speed with the operators for each Irish airports. Similarly different levels of avgeeks have differing levels of knowledge.
    This forum is for learning and spreading knowledge.

    The forecasts were fairly lacking today anyway, maybe thats why the decision was made.

    While the TAFs overnight were on the usual conservative side the highest gust of 56 knots was reported before 7 am. Thereafter the highest gusts have been 46-49 knots right down the runway, still a bit more than this morning's TAF. The windshear was the bigger problem but I would still be expecting companies to be letting aircraft go in those conditions.

    Unless it was conditions at EMA that they were concerned about.

    Can't believe another FR24 thread has reached 10,000 posts in a year when I started the first one back in 2013 lol :)

    Was on the Shamrock 177 from LHR-DUB tonight and we went around at the threshold of 28 due to windsheer, height of 20-30 feet with a good bit of left wing drop and unstable roundout, second approach was similar but we landed :D

    First ever go-around on Aer Lingus !!

    Anyone know what the wind was in Dublin at 21:30?

    The pilot of RYR8QZ has a really strong and recognizable Scottish accent that I've heard before. Its even more peculiar when he says "Oiche Mhaith" to ATC, half the population don't even know what that means!

    *Oiche Mhaith is Irish for Good night.

    The gust reported in a metar only refers to the previous 10 minutes before the report.

    Was on A Ryanair flight with him before and he was trying to convince a scared flyer not to bail just as they were about to close the door. He was saying "Do you think I'd be doing this everyday if I thought it was unsafe" and brought her up to the flight deck.

    Anyway she bailed.

    Storm Henry passed without any major disruption at any Irish airports.
    Would have been none or close to it if the BA's didn't seem to get so tempermental everytime a breeze comes :D


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 22,847 ✭✭✭✭Shannon757


    Yay my post is first!

    Sounds like a C130 passing over Ireland. Showing on FR24 as Yanky99. Just north of Dublin now.
