I have a quick question about wind checks. When I spotting at Sydney (YSSY), I often hear tower clearing aircraft to land and giving them spot wind checks at the runway threshold, all pretty standard.
What I don't understand is when that wind check contains a downwind component. For example:
QFA32, Wind 160/10 Downwind 2, Cleared to land RWY 16R
(That is an example and not a wind scenario I've heard.)
Am I overthinking this? Is the downwind component just given when they are landing with a tailwind?
