Flying Through the Eye of the Storm: NOAA Hurricane Hunters

"Miss Piggy," a Lockheed Orion hurricane hunter aircraft; and "Gonzo," a high-altitude Gulfstream-IV business jet fly in-formation on their way to another hurricane hunter mission.

With hurricane season set to start next week, Tuesday (May 24) marks a record 127 months since a major hurricane has made landfall in the continental United States, according to statistics compiled by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Hurricane Research Division, which keeps data on all the hurricanes that have struck the U.S. since 1851.

LACKING LANDFALLS The last time a major hurricane made landfall in the United States was Hurricane Wilma, shown hitting Naples, Fla. Such a long gap is incredibly rare, new research shows.
