We're taking off on 22, and there is a windsock out there that shows us going in the direction of the wind! What do you guys think based on this photo? Could that be for real? I thought that there was a 6kt limit on tailwinds for safe takeoff - that windsock looks like a bit more than 6kts! It appears to be pointed right in the direction we are going but could be slightly off but that is not taking off "into the wind"! There was no bad weather on that day and the ride was not unusually bumpy.
