Thread: Microburst, Wind shear!

  1. Default Microburst, Wind shear!

    Hey guys,

    This is something I've never really noticed within FSX before until today! When flying in my livestream today, the aircraft enters a storm surge which causes the aircraft to start violently shaking! Not knowing what exactly I was in, I start to do the completely wrong things, trying to slow the aircraft down and descend. Fortunately for me, I was at high altitude and therefore was able to get through it without too many issues, but that didn't stop my flight crew from getting one small dig at me!

    So what do you guys thing about this one, wind shear and microbursts within FSX? I'm using ActiveSky 2016 (which would have taken real world data and created the storm!), the PMDG 737 NGX which would have made the aircraft act like it would, and FSPassengers which doesn't fully understand how weather works, leading to all eyes on me as the culprit for the aircraft shaking out of the sky!

    Definitely different to what I normally get...

    This episode of Mayday has a CGI that shows the Microburst, and why it's so dangerous, in great detail.

    Hope I never go through one on an airliner.

    Yeah, we've all watched Mayday/Air Crash Investigation, I remember that one well.
