Video - Hurricane Hunters in Action

It's hurricane season and your students can track hurricanes in Google Earth. But they might wonder, like I once did, how meteorologists get hurricane data. One of the ways they get the data is from planes flown into hurricanes. NOAA's Hurricane Hunters is a short video about the pilots, the scientists, and the planes that fly into hurricanes to gather storm data. You can watch the video online or download it here.
