Hurricane Hunters

Tech. Sgt. James Piskorz, 403rd Maintenance Squadron crew chief, signals the pilots of the WC-130J that they are cleared to proceed onto the taxiway after their flight into the remnants of Dorian July 28, 2013. The 53rd Weather Reconnaissance Squadron aircrew flew through the tropical wave to gather storm data for analysis by the National Hurricane Center to help determine if Dorian was dissipating or gathering strength. Hurricane Hunter aircrews and other 403rd Wing members deploy to several locations in the United States and Pacific and Atlantic Oceans to fly storm missions during the hurricane season, which officially starts June 1 and ends November 30 each year.
