Typhoon Haima Affects Air Traffic Across East Asia! (credit: www.flightradar24.com via Meteo Europe)
DISCUSSION: As Typhoon Haima continues to march into parts of eastern Asia, you can clearly see the affect which this tropical cyclone is having on the flight tracks of commercial aircraft travelling in the vicinity of this storm. Note how many of the flights are being forced to divert around the core of Haima as it began its all-out assault on parts of eastern China earlier today! A very common sight with respect to the re-routing of both commercial and private aircraft in the vicinity of an ocean-bound and/or landfalling tropical cyclone!
