(1) Conditions were bright and sunny for both stages, with the riders being helped up the last part of Norwood Edge by a strong tailwind .(2) Paddling hard, assisted by the ferocious tailwind and strong current, we could sometimes outpace sailboats.(3) When all the conditions are meet, and there is perhaps a favourable wind, or a tailwind , then set sail.(4) The example always showed us how jets flying from San Diego to Cleveland would pass to the north of the high to enjoy a tailwind , and jets flying the opposite route would deviate to the south for the same reason.(5) With sails raised proudly, we continued south carried by a tailwind on gentle swells.(6) A tailwind had brought the aircraft into the airport quicker than expected.(7) It was fast, mostly downhill, and mother nature was good enough to hold the rain off and afford us a light tailwind .(8) One prediction derived from optimal migration theory is that migrating animals that maximize their flight distance on a given amount of energy will decrease their airspeed in a tailwind and increase it in a headwind.(9) With a tailwind , fuel can be economized with a straight-line route.(10) A flight arrives at London airport six days late, although the pilot believes his plane is half an hour early due to a tailwind .(11) The quartering tailwind was not favorable for the landing runway, but it was nothing we hadn't dealt with before.(12) The riders must be hoping for a tailwind blowing in from the coast and up the valley.(13) May said the southbound dragonflies appear to take advantage of tailwinds generated by cold fronts blowing from the north.(14) Headwinds and tailwinds can slow down or speed up travel, respectively, and pilots can adjust the height at which they fly to avoid or take advantage of winds.(15) Because of good tailwinds my flight arrived in Newark approximately 30 minutes ahead of schedule.(16) First of all, a great circle route is the most efficient, and second, we try to take advantage of tailwinds and stay out of headwinds, all of which goes into determining our actual route of flight.
