Margie, they have a base in either Puerto Rico or the US Virgin Islands -- someone with a bit more knowledge can help me out there, please! -- that they use for flying these storms. Usually only one (sometimes two) plane(s) get sent out that way, though, due to cost reasons, limiting the number of flights that can be made into these storms. However, 6hrly fixes usually suffice until they get closer to the mainland, when the full suite of planes can head in and around the storm.
