First All Female Hurricane Hunter Flight Crew Gathers Hurricane Dorian Data

Hurricane hunters made history on Thursday while gathering the latest data on Hurricane Dorian.

According to a tweet from the NOAA Aircraft Operations Center, the first all female three-pilot flight crew flew a mission into the storm.

The Lakeland, Florida-based crew consisted of Capt. Kristie Twining, Cmdr. Rebecca Waddington and Lt. Lindsey Norman.

Data gathered on these flights help meteorologists determine the strength and path of the hurricane.

Manned flights into hurricanes have been occurring since 1943, so congratulations to these ladies!
