From USAToday:
A NW pilot faces a 45-day suspension for trying to land in high winds and an apparent tornado, officials said. Michael Hughes "was careless and endangered the lives and property of others" when he tried to land the DC-9 in Sioux Falls., in June according to the FAA suspension order issued Tuesday. He can fly pending appeal. His union attorney was not available; the airline had no comment.
South Dakota had 67 tornadoes that day, tying a national record for the most in a state in a 24-hour period. Passengars likened the experience to pushing the jet sideways. Hughes finally landed in Omaha.

Was he able to land the plane at Sioux City, or did he divert the plane to another airport?


God bless through Jesus, Jeff

Wow... maybe that's how they are planning on getting rid of their DC-9s!

If KE pilots can get away with pushing a 747 sideways, this pilot did nothing wrong. Check it out.

I'm all in favour of keeping dangerous weapons out of the hands of fools. Let's start with keyboards.

Wow, I have to tell you being someone who is learning to fly and would love to fly for a commercial airline I would abort any landing that looked questionable due to weather or otherwise, it seems common sense but being 20 minutes late sure beats the alternatives, and hey leave those DC-9s alone!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

You obviously haven't lived in the midwest/plains during a severe weather outbreak. Supercells, thunderstorms, and tornado outbreaks can last for up to 4 or 5 hours as they "freight train" over an area.

Nice move by the Korean Pilots. High crosswind landing. I thought after the AA crash in Arkansas, airline carriers required pilots to diveret if the weather was threatening beyond normal conditions. As well as both flying pilots must set and verify speed break.
