More on the US Air Force 53rd Weather Reconnaissance Squadron

As an aviation enthusiast and a weather enthusiast, I am interested in how aircraft our used to help forecast weather as well as other weather related uses. The June 1st official beginning of the east coast hurricane season is almost upon us, and we have already had one named tropical system (Ana). I can think of no better way to begin then to write about Hurricane Hunting aircraft. I first wrote about Hurricane Hunters on May 12th

I will continue by writing three posts on the US Air Force Reserve 53rd Weather Reconnaissance Squadron:
May 22: Tour of USAF Hurricane Hunter Aircraft
May 25: Interview with USAF Aerial Wx Reconnaissance Officer
May 27: USAF Hurricane Hunters fly into Hurricane Sandy (2012)

I am in the process of working on other articles about Hurricane Hunters and will post more articles on Hurricane Hunters starting June 1st. Stay tuned.

In the meantime, enjoy this short video about the USAF 53rd Weather Reconnaissance Squadron direct link to video
