Girl Scouts are invited to take a tour of a hurricane hunter plane!  Hurricane hunter planes play an integral role in hurricane forecasting. Data collected during hurricanes (by flying into the storm!) help forecasters predict how intense a hurricane will be, and when and where it will make landfall.


This event is open to all grade levels and there is no cost to participate.  The hurricane hunter plane will be in Mobile June 3 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.  The plane will be located at the Mobile Air Center (Mobile Regional Airport) which is on the west side of the airport.  To get to the Mobile Air Center, take the entrance immediately west of the entrance to the airport, which is named Flave Pierce Road.


If you are interested in participating, contact Mary Anne Brutkiewicz, extension 1202, with your troop #, and the number of girls and volunteers who will be attending.
