Do you think the storm 9 winds forecast would be an issue for such a big plane?.


I ken the peerie Flybe eens cope braaly good but it's a big aircraft on a narrow runway.

If, as looks likely, the wind is blowing along the extended coast to coast runway she should be able to land with ease.

There's plenty of stock in the two local shops I've been in today, but I've heard several reports of panic buying in Tesco.


I suppose it shows how reliant some folk have become on Tesco.


Maybe it's a sign of the times, but I've always thought being cut off from the mainland for a few days in winter was one of the 'charms' of living in Shetland :wink:

We were told when we were young about folk being cut off for more than a few days and always having enough to keep them going. I even heard of one tale of an elderly woman burning furniture to stay warm.

Odd how in 100 years, folk have gone from hardy and trusted workers (whaling + fishing) to folk who cannot keep a bit by for when the weather closes in. Ah weel....
