A real big wind landing, 40+ MPH with gusts high enough to make the Annie "hover" at 100kph (~60 mph). I had a heck of a time setting her down with a load of nine executive types who wrote me a check for almost enough to buy the plane to take them from Vancouver International to their working retreat out in the hills. Air sick bags got used up on the way in, and the landing was an adventure to say the least. May need to get the tail wheel looked at... This is what passes for "light and variable winds" according to the local weather geek who doubtlessly got big kickbacks if the tourists got brought in during such weather.
