Storm Erik was pretty vicious when it passed through Ireland and the UK on Friday.

It made aircraft operations difficult at a number of airports.

This video was taken at Gatwick (just south of London) and I understand that an Emirates A380 had two attempts at landing there before diverting to Manchester.

He was a bit tight on fuel by all accounts.

The sight of the runway ahead through the side window must be pretty unnerving.

Turbulence so severe it flipped the drink cart? ‘We did a nose dive... twice’

Quote:
“I was sitting toward the back of the plane, so I saw the drink cart hit the ceiling, along with the flight attendant who was doing the drink service,” she said. “That was amazing just to see all that happening, and then you could see the people who aren’t belted in. They’re hitting the ceiling, and they’re flying up out of their seats. So, always wear your seat belt, no matter what, because this was unexpected.”

No wonder cars were so popular then. Just look at how empty the road is. I bet it was fun to drive.

Driving 2 miles to the center of town, meeting another car was unusual, then in the off hours, for 4 miles out of town I'd probably meet a car or two but it wasn't unusual to not meet another car.

Well, it was a long time ago. In a land far, far away...

Thanks for the correction.

You didn't say where you saw it, I was responding to Fargon's comment it was Denver.
Had to look it up because I thought it was LA, they have one too.

It is a tangent but dang yes. Every car commercial ever is a fun windy twisty road...

disclaimer: closed course professional driver do not attempt

...and there are no other cars on it and no lights and you just haul off and enjoy. The actual experience is like that on approximately 1 out of every 365 trips.

In fact you could only get that experience regularly if you were on closed courses and were a professional driver.

Not these days in most places, but I think glatt was referring to the 50's and 60's, and he's right about a lot less traffic and easier to find the road less traveled.

Yeah. I was referring to there being fewer cars on the road back then. Fewer people in the country, and people didn't have 2-3 cars in the driveway. They could only afford one. And gas was expensive, adjusting for inflation.

All that said, I found the spot on Google Earth, and the road is pretty empty today too. I guess the number of flights a day determines the amount of traffic on that airport road.

This image looks different because they added another runway overpass, and the camera is a wide angle lens, not a telephoto.
