(The title is "Flying in Thunderstorms." As you know we don't fly "in" thunderstorms but "near" them) :)))
Note: Please overlook the competition's winglet. Apparently, that's all the footage they could find. :))))
Here you see two "blurry" Airbus screens. I have to get a new digital. Rumour has it Captain D may see one for father's day. :)
The right screen depicts the area of thunderstorms. We were at 38,000 feet and the picture below depicts us flying between two topping much higher than us. We had a tailwind as depicted in the top left corner of the ND (NAV display). The green dashed line was our flight plan and the solid line was out present track. (...and yes the topic of Air France 447 comes up on a regular basis when we fly near thunderbumpers).
The F/O did an excellent job weaving around them. Yes, he took us to Mexico city. I have yet to land there although I've been there four times in the last month. That's part of the package when you fly with me...first leg, I buy coffee and do the first walk around. Many F/Os are taken aback because of it. I would buy the first beer, but these MMMX trips have dismal "beer math." Pity....
