@Boaco in these conditions, it doesn't matter which direction the wind is coming from...

In fact, it matters a lot. If this were a headwind, it would make it EASIER to land than no wind at all. Also, significant wind gusts only occur around storms, and I don't see evidence of one here.

Yes. my Uncle Pete lives there and takes the plane in and out of Wellington fairly often, and on numerous occasions a collection from the passengers was proffered to the flight crew on landing!!

I live in New Zealand and flew into Wellington recently. The flight was during one of the worst winds all year. My 2 year old son slept through the landing and only woke up when everyone started clapping because the pilot managed to land it first time

@OldOllie, in these conditions, it doesn't matter which direction the wind is coming from, look at the water, its a good indicator how strong the gust of winds are.

This is why airports in most civilized locations have more than one runway.

Asiana Airlines should have a hub at this location. The only way to land is manually and if you can land in these conditions you can land anywhere!

@ Emmettyville: Emmy, this is why I was unable to attend your recent "How To Swear Like A Pirate" seminar. Pilot tried three times and then, taking a page from your syllabus, said "F@CK IT!" Maybe next time. =^.^=

Been there, done that, not fun and you know it's bad when the crew have a shakey voice after you've landed

Sometimes you just have to say "f*ck this" and try something else...
