How frequently is wake turbulence encountered at cruising altitudes?
|Quoting IAHFLYR (Reply 1):|
I believe there is some turbulence caused by the wing in flight.

I must admit it was a bit scary, after which the Captain came on the PA and mentioned that the jolt was caused by a 747 crossing us 1000 above after which the wake "fell down on us".
