    Dear friends and followers, welcome back to my channel!
    With a huge 220 knot wind speed in the core of the Polar Jet Stream, the weather on Saturday 8th February 2020 made it a record-breaking day for transatlantic flights. Golf Charlie India Victor Papa, a British Airways Boeing 747-400 flying from New York to London flew the normally 6-and-a-half-hour flight in just 4 hours and 56 minutes, arriving a massive 80 MINUTES ahead of schedule!
    It’s important to remember that despite the 747 reaching a peak groundspeed of 716 knots respectively 825 miles per hour, almost 130 knots faster than the speed of sound at FL350, it did not at any point fly supersonic and your immediate question is how?
    That's what we will be looking at in today's video :)
    Thank you very much for your time! I hope you enjoy this video!
    Wishing you all the best!
    Your "Captain" Joe
    Big thank you to all other youtubers who provided me with the video material to create this video. Your content is highly appreciated. Please follow their channels:

Hey Captain Joe I saw a video by Cheddar explaining the transatlantic flight paths and stated that a 787 went supersonic. Obviously not, because this video explains it.

I learned first hand of the jet stream, and how it effected flights from the US to the other side of the pond. I was captivated by how certain meteorological events allowed this record to happen. Your first example of the conveyor brought it into clear perspective for me! Thanks! great vid!

Hi Joe! I was wondering if this would've effected the Concorde at all, because it is supersonic. Would it take 2 hours, then?

I always loved the flight from Arizona to the Midwest. One time the pilot said we were cruising around 740 MPH ground speed. The flight back is a %$#@! though.

Are the atc procedures now in effect that allow better route optimization relative to the jet stream? If so, that would also be a major contributing factor to the speed record.

If they sent me west that day, I would ask for a routing well over Greenland to get away from that. Once returning from Amsterdam to Toronto, we were routed far to the north. The pilot repeatedly apologized, but I think it is only affected flight time by 20 minutes, BUT for me, I got to see the moonscape over Iceland and later the remarkable glacial features of northern Labrador. Two places I doubt I will ever see. Real fun. I wonder what the altitude dependency on these winds was as well.

Would have been really interesting to see how long Concorde would have taken to do the JFK-LHR route on that same day, although at FL600 it may have been outside the jetstream anyway.....or am I wrong about that?

From London to New York sure the flight time would have increased but doesn't the fuel in this flight too would have saved maintaining same IAS with engine almost on idle.

The speed of sound is 660 MPH at 35,000 so if an A380 is going at 680 MPH, than it is flying supersonic... or at least transonic.

@Captain Joe This may be stupid question but... Is it possible to suddenly loose the tail wind, so that TAS reached GS and the aircraft hits the speed of sound barier? And if so... that would be guaranteed crash, right?

Vor 10 Monate
Paweł Ciepliński
Paweł Ciepliński

@Thomas Mortimore OK, thanks for your replies buddy! I guess my question if "crushing" into speed of sound is possible remains unanswered thought. Sure using streams is common, that's how you save fuel and time, but such extreme examples are the other thing. Hope we'll never find the answer the hard way! Cheers!

Vor 10 Monate
Thomas Mortimore
Thomas Mortimore

Paweł Ciepliński well it must be allowed otherwise they would have got out of the jet stream. The NAT tracks created for aircraft usually take advantage of the jet stream going east bound so there is clearly no harm in it. And no I’m not a real pilot (yet) but have a lot of experience with flight sim and studying aviation material

@Thomas Mortimore P.S. And I hope you don't mind me asking: are you a pilot or we're just two amateurs discussion it?

Paweł Ciepliński

@Thomas Mortimore Is it only theory thought or is it either very improbable or can modern radars detect such eventuality? A lot potential dangerous things are allowed due to calculated risk. You're allowed to drive on highway even 140 kph as in my country, it doesn't mean it's 100% safe to do so. Yes, I get aviation laws are much more strict. Is it allowed to use sonextreme winds like this unconditionally and/or are such flights common? Isn't it most common that you do your MACH 0.85 in strong wind when your ground speed wouldn't exceed MACH 1?

Vor 10 Monate
Thomas Mortimore
Thomas Mortimore

Paweł Ciepliński yes in theory if the wind suddenly stopped the plane would suddenly find itself flying faster than the speed of sound relative to the air it is flying through. However I doubt it happens otherwise planes would not be allowed to fly in a jet stream for safety reasons. And they would be limited to tailwinds. Same with head winds. If they were flying against a 200knots head wind and then suddenly it stopped the aircraft would have no lift and stall. Also an air pocket is just another term for turbulence

Doesn't the earth curvature affect the difference between TAS and GS as well? With no winds and a constant TAS while climbing, wouldn't the GS progressively drop as the distance covered in relation to the earth's surface becomes less with higher radius?
