They haven't confirmed that this was the same flight, but apparently they were this close.

RAAF posted a facebook video on Super Hornet operations during Operation OKRA (dated 1 September at 18:36).

Anyone know why they blocked out / blurred the air intakes on the SH?

Also apparently the missions are typically 8-9 hours.

Pretty cool video in the link of a plane flying into hurricane Irma to collect data link

That would be a cool sight to see. Never seen a water spout before seen a Tornado though. I remember a helicopter filming a waterspout in Wales off the coast I think it was.

Not a video, but this is a shot taken by a WC-130J inside the eye of Hurricane Irma.

We had one come back from flying into Hurricane Iniki, heading towards Hawaii, that had the wire antenna wrapped around one prop (with the engine shut down), one engine overheating, every vomit bag on the plane, and every other container they could use full, and about half the paint on the aircraft stripped from rain and hail.

That's crazy I certainly wouldn't want to fly into one. I'm not scared of flying at all but I kind of dislike it as well. I think it's more a I'm not in control sort of thing if you catch my drift. I hate being a passenger in a car as well especially after a pretty nasty crash a few years ago.

The NOAA uses a P-3 to fly through the storm. They use dropsondes in the eye to get pressure readings. They use a G-IV, and NASA has used a Global Hawk to fly over the storm and measure the winds above the storm to get an idea of the steering winds around it.

The Air Force uses modified C-130s to do the same as the P-3s.

Interesting way of visualizing VRS, and a way of exiting VRS.

You're not allowed to shoot down the intakes anymore. They've made some changes to try to reduce the RCS somewhat, so most units are twitchy about you shooting the intakes now, and official pics have to be blurred.

I'm sorry, but when your plane hits a tree, and the tree bounces back, that's a sign you need a heavier plane.

Pre flight drinks were a baaad idea. There is a video that slows the footage down but you get the idea. And if I were that person in the foreground I'd be buying a lottery ticket, after I've changed my underwear

Sigh. I do apologise I done an ATS school boy error I didn't check to see if the video was posted else where before I posted my reply. I apologise but the video was posted here before I posted it www.abovetopsecret.com...

We have more than one posted elsewhere as well. No big deal.
