Cool The BA Cloud!

As there appears to be some interest in the weather and clouds on the BA forum I thought I would start a dedicated thread (with some excellent ideas from as yet undisclosed sources, they know who they are ) to this aspect of travelling with BA...

Here goes;

This is the BA cloud gallery thread - please post photos of quizzical/interesting cloud formations from your BA point of departure/en route/destination such as from the seat of your BA flight in this thread, together with Flight no, time and location. It is hoped that this will promote discussion and through this we can all gain greater knowledge of the cloud characteristics over our home towns or while travelling to places with BA.

To ensure we keep this relevant to BA...please include a recognisable feature - city, royal blue engine nacelle, or some other distinguishable UK/BA item.

In addition and interspersed with good measure, we can post information on;

-Why the UK (and specifically airports BA use) receives the weather it does and how could this affect your flights or any delays in travelling when we get specific types of weather (this can include destination weather for BA flights as well if desired)

-Post detailed METAR or TAF (and any other relevant weather) information during periods of weather delays or interruption at an airport BA use in the hope it helps those travelling in their plans

-Provide some background on why we have weather at all instead of clear blue skies all the time and how this could affect your BA plans for vacations (thinking Hurricane, Tornado, Monsoon, etc... locations and seasons here)

-Provide a nice diversion for people flying BA while in one of the lounges or sitting in an airport by having some nice pictures to look at!

-post links to relevant sources for more information or where to go if you really get the 'weather' bug!

-have some fun

Of course, any other BA related weather or cloud questions can also be included…just post and we'll see where this goes….

Hope this thread is of interest and gets everyone thinking and talking about the weather on our favourite airline

So, look up or out your seat window instead of looking down...and take lots of pictures

...first post with clouds or covering one of the above topics coming soon to a screen near you….
