'Everyone On The Plane Threw Up' On Flight Into Dulles: Report

The epic windstorm that roared into the D.C. area on Friday caused such a rough landing at Dulles Airport that "pretty much everyone on the plane threw up," according to the pilot's report.

The National Weather Service's Aviation Weather Center lists very brief summaries of turbulence and wind encountered at various airports, usually something unreadable like "BWI UA /OV BAL290003/TM 1914/FL042/TP B738/SK BASES BKN042 TOPS BKN093."

However, there was a rather interesting entry this morning.

"IAD UUA /OV KIAD/TM 1238/FL040/TP CRJ2/TB MOD-SEV/RM VERY BUMPY ON DESCENT," the report states. "PRETTY MUCH EVERY ONE ON THE PLANE THREW UP. PILOTS WERE ON THE VERGE OF THROWING UP."

Wind gusts have topped 60 and even 70 miles per hour in some places, and the high winds are expected to continue into tomorrow morning. It has resulted in delays at Dulles Airport and a suspension of Amtrak service, as well as widespread power outages.

1. I believe it!

70 MPH gusts here in Maryland. Fortunately, we're okay. My friends had a tree fall onto their garage.

2. Why would you be landing a plane at that airport in those conditions.

5. According to the article I read earlier...

Not the pilots, but "almost".

4. Glad I missed that one, holy moly! Whenever possible we use National Airport,

even BWI. Dulles Internatl. can be wicked in many ways.
