Turbulence Over Raleigh, NC Last Night

Thu Jun 09, 2005 12:22 am

Hi everyone! I was wondering if anyone else had the pleasure of flying through that turbulence over North Carolina (specifically Raleigh/Durham) last night? I flew over there on Independence flight 5 (IAD-MCO) and we hit some big bumps. Might've gone down as my bumpiest flight ever!

Not personally, but my bumpiest flight ever was from RDU to LGW in 2003...maybe it's got something to do with the updraft from all that good bar-b-cue being cooked all over NC  wink

We hit some very good turbulance coming out of PHL inApril last year. One jolt was so bad a few bins poppedopen spewing there contents around. Did not help one bit that i was over the wing, watching the light at the far end (could just see it) moving madly up and down.

Remember closing my eyes, and listening to the music. Some calming stuff i rememeber. Was a good trip in the end
Where does the time go???
