HURRICANE HUNTER PLANE

As part of the Hurricane Awareness Tour,
a Hurricane Hunter Plane came to Long Island.

On May 5, 2009, the Plane landed at
Republic Airport in Farmingdale, NY.

People were able to go inside the plane, talk with various staff inside the plane and then go see exhibits to Plan for and Respond to
Local Hurricane Threats.

I didn't realize that the plane is stationed
out of Tampa, FL and was built in 1976.

Here's some pictures that I took

If you ever have the chance to go on board the Plane, do it.
