Today would have been a great day to be flying east to visit my folks in Yarmouth, at least as far as the winds go - over 35 kt tailwind at 9000 ft, and if we donned the oxygen masks and climbed up to 17,000 ft we’d have almost 80 kt tailwind. Predicted enroute time of 2:10 at 17,000 ft for the 464 nm flight to Yarmouth. Wow! It would be a long flight westbound though - 3:40 home, at 8,000 ft.

Winds at 9,000 ft.

Winds at 17,000 ft.
