If you are following Hurricane Katrina as it roars from Louisiana to Ontario, check out the web site of the 403rd Wing of the Air Force Reserve, known as Hurricane Hunters. The 403rd flies into tropical storms and hurricanes to measure speeds and also take photos and movies. This picture is of the "stadium effect" glimpsed inside the eye.
Several '58s live in the path of Katrina. Louisiana: Lee Leonard and George Sabo; Arkansas: Byron Hathorn, Pat Stein McPheters, and Robinette Kaylor Gibbons. We hope they are all safe and well.
