Learn about hurricanes from Air Force-trained meteorologists/Challenger 1 senior members 1st Lt Libby Haynes and Captain Kimberley Mevers. Watch their METEOROLOGY LESSON presented at our Aerospace Education meeting this past August. For some excitement, watch EARLY HURRICANE HUNTERS Youtube video recommended by Lt Haynes who was forecasting for USAF in the 1950s. She says, “It’s the first instance of a┬ápilot flying into a hurricane on a dare.”
