Why land to the south with a tail wind when they can land toward the north and still not interfere with LGA?
You don't get the wind, do you? 190/18G24...
Simple answer,no. I see on FlightRadar24 planes landing to the south, yet I see a post about a crosswind on 22R, then a post about a tailwind. Planes landing to the south, reporting tailwind in my laymen mind tells me the wind is out of the north, it is winter. But a crosswind on 22R leads me to believe its a NW wind. Again, why not land to the north then?
So no, myself and the hundreds of other lurkers who will read thread do not know what 190/18G4 means? I am pretty sure its something to do with wind direction but do know from what direction.
