Heavy sidewind prevented aircraft from landing on Værnes

The planes tried to land, but went up and went to Oslo instead.

“It’s a powerful sidewind, so there are two flights that have now returned to Oslo,” says Operations Operator Svein Sandvik at Avinor in Værnes. About 20 knots powerful wind disrupted landing of aircraft.

Most pilots do not land in such conditions, however, it depends on the pilot in command to decide.

it’s very rare. It is when there is strong wind before the south and the plane is east / west. Then the planes will feel good aside.

“It can be a little hurry on the plane,” says Sandvik.

There are no plans for more landings on Wednesday night.
