AFRC celebrates 100 years of air reserve power with C-130 special missions demo
Staff Sgt. Jesse Jordan, 53d Weather Reconnaissance Squadron loadmaster, monitors weather data after deploying a dropsonde during a flight off of the east coast of the United States, June 28, 2016. A dropsonde is used by the Hurricane Hunters to collect temperature, humidity, wind speed and direction of weather systems. The information is then sent to the National Hurricane Center in Miami to monitor tropical storms. As part of the 100th anniversary of air power in the U.S. military, members of the media were invited to fly with the Hurricane Hunters and learn about their weather surveillance mission.
