Just wanted to share my horrorflight on SK903 to EWR yesterday. First of all the flight was over an hour late leaving ARN due to snow storm which lead to de-icing and having to wait before the runway was swiped clean. Anyway, the flight was very nice all the way till we hit the north-east coast of the American continent. I knew before that the wind was going to be strong but I had not expected what was to come. Approximately 1 hour before landing and with a headwind of nearly 250 km/h all hell broke lose. At first I thought that the turbulence was fun but soon enough it was clear from the sound of the vomiting and screams from other passengers that this was very moderate to severe turbulence. We were tossed from side to side, up and down and it felt like around and around. Lucky for us we had a nice Norwegian captain that almost all the time we were in the turbulence came on the PA and ensured us that we were not in any harm at all and that the airplane would tolerate much more than we humans do. That was comforting, a little anyway. The landing on 22 L was a masterpiece with very heavy crosswind, very fun indeed.
Well we landed safely and we got a cool visit in the cockpit afterwards. I will post pictures after my return on Tuesday.
