    Hey Fellas,

    I saw that on my lunch break, the news feed where I saw it said the wind was 155 mph,
    That HAD to be a mistake? but regardless that was one stiff crosswind. If I had been sitting right seat I would have been crying like a 4 year old girl whose hamster just died, LOL

    HI, I was watching this on another site the other night. I think they were talking about 50 mph crosswinds. Even 155 KPH would translate to a 93mph crosswind! Looks like it was a hell of a ride, lots of lucky people.
