NOAA G-IV Aircraft Studying Hurricane Matthew

NOAA's Gulfstream IV-SP and crew soar the skies on an 8-plus hour Hurricane Matthew surveillance mission. Leading the way up front are pilots Cmdr. Kristie Twining (left) and Lt. Cmdr. Ron Moyers (right).

Today, the NOAA Gulfstream IV-SP (N49RF), NOAA Lockheed WP-3D Orion (N43RF) and the NASA Global Hawk (which is co-piloted by a NOAA Corps officer) are all soaring the skies to investigate Hurricane Matthew. Flights into and around this hurricane have been ongoing for the past week to gather vital information about the storm's characteristics. To stay up to date with the most recent storm developments, please visit the National Hurricane Center's website. Also, be sure to follow the NOAA Hurricane Hunters on Facebook and Twitter.
