Hurricane Hunters Hawaii Bound - High Flying Orion P3 Already At Work
      Fri Aug 07 2009 10:31 PM

The 53rd Weather Reconnaissance Squadron of the Air Force Reserves 403rd Wing (the "Hurricane Hunters") have just arrived in Hawaii this afternoon from their 'home port' at Keesler Air Force Base in Biloxi, Mississippi to begin making regular 6-hourly flights into Hurricane Felicia tomorrow.

The information they collect will assist the Central Pacific Hurricane Center, located here in Honolulu, to begin Tracking and Forecasting Hurricane Felicia as soon as she enters the Central Pacific Ocean, sometime on Saturday.

Also, the high flying Orion P3 Aircraft is already in Hawaii and has been hard at work for the past 2 days, collecting and transmitting data to the NHC & CPHC for use as guidance in preparing the forecast packages and advisories.
