They do that two to three times a day per crew. Every hurricane that comes near US territory has a WC-130 flying into it up to five times a day.


I know someone who does this #...for fun. He LIKES it.

They all do. I think it's a requirement to get the job that you be certifiable.

What altitude are they flying in at?

Depends on which leg of the penetration they're doing. They do five or six passes per mission. They vary the altitude on each leg to get a range of readings.

If you watch closely when they break out into the eye of the storm, this is actually the NOAA WP-3D. Same mission, same mission profile, different agency.

I have to admit, I initially watched it on a cell phone screen and didn't look close enough. Thanks for correcting that.

Easy enough mistake. The NOAA aircraft are much less advertised than the Keesler guys are. And it was only really clear from the outside when he showed the #4 prop.

Ahhh, that explains my desire to do that.

I know. If I had a way to wrangle a ride I'd do it in a New York second.

I wonder if you could ride one with some kind of weather ballon pod and specially designed sail

On second thought it would go horribly wrong if you ended in the eye prematurely... Not a good place to land...

Hmm or some foldaway batwings could save you by gliding far away from the walls inner walls to be safe enough to open a parachute with and draw a hot air balloon so you can safely go up and over the walls...

Lol this is could be a new extreme sport..

Yeah, that engine nacelle is a dead giveaway.

Coincidentally, I was watching this a bit earlier:

They should sell some seats on these birds for the ride and then when you get back near home you jump out for a skydive? That'd be a whole extreme package...

Modify the dropsonde tube to be big enough to put a person through and drop them out the bottom of the plane.

Lmao. . You surely don't want me into science to find out if it would be effective. .
