Another Pilot Question
I just finished a trip to Bangkok. Flew from Atlanta to Narita on the way out. It was a tad bumpy but not bad – though they kept the seat belt sign on almost the whole way. Somewhere out there in the middle of nowhere we did hit some sudden and rather jarring bumps. Almost like hitting a set of speed bumps too fast in the car.
Someone from the cockpit came on the intercom and said we had hit turbulence from another aircraft that had crossed our path.
How close would we have had to come for that to happen like that?
I was on a 777 – not sure about altitude.
Thanks to anyone who might know.
