Thunderstorms and CB's (photos)

September came in with its lot of CB's, thunderstorms, heavy rainfalls and high winds.
Some rather relaxed days at work can turn and did turn into uncomfortable situations.
It brought a weather diversion, two crosswind landings in 40 knot gusts (one which I did as PF with a Line Training Captain in the left seat), lots of flights surrounded by CB's, St Elmo's fires (too busy to take the camera out on this one, unfortunately), ...

July, August and September were by far the busiest months and I spent the majority of my days off travelling, commuting home and flying gliders, giving me little spare time to update the blog.
I logged 300 hours in 3 months while it took me 8 years to log my first 100 hours ...

Here are a few picture from the 737's flightdeck:












Time to rest on the beach, 5 min walk from my hotel ...

Super photos. t'es-tu déjà retrouvé dans des conditions difficiles (sévères turbulences, grêles, ..) ? J'imagine que cela ne doit pas être facile les premières fois.
