Katrina Watch

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.

WOW! This is some site! I went thru the Cyberflight via "Hurricane Hunters" and know that that is the ONLY way I'll ever want to do that. Mind- boggling that folks really fly into those things. Great site, Will!

George Sabo a sweetheart of a guy does not spell his name with a z in it. Praying he and his family are safe.

Wow, you are so right! I have corrected the spelling. I mixed it up with a friend here, who uses a "z" in his name. Apologies to George, who I hope is safe and well. Thank you, anonymous!
