Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunters promote storm preparedness
An Air Force Reserve Command WC-130J Hercules sits on the flight line at the Curacao International Airport, Curacao, April 12, 2019. National Hurricane Center director Ken Graham, federal hurricane specialists, and Reserve Citizen Airmen of the 53rd Weather Reconnaissance Squadron, discussed hurricane preparedness, resilience and how community members can become “weather-ready” as part of the Caribbean Hurricane Awareness Tour, April 8-13, 2019. Tours of the WC-130J Hercules “Hurricane Hunter” offered dignitaries, students and members of the public an opportunity to learn how scientists collect hurricane information. The NOAA WP-3D aircraft, used for both hurricane forecasting and research, was on display as well. (U.S. Air Force photo by Lt. Col. Marnee A.C. Losurdo)
