This doesn't limit to the c-172.

I do not know whether this has been fixed or not, but back in Feburary when I 
was testing the model for the A380, I notice that the wind is "powerful" 
enough to moved the A380 slowly from the center of the runway to the edge of 
the runway.

Going back a bit further, when I was testing the model of the MD-11, a gust of 
wind could come and lifted the nose of the aircraft up.  If the wind is 
"strong" enough, the aircraft would pivot all the way around its main landing 
gears, flipped, and sunk below the ground.
