Abstract:

On 02 September,2007, NOAA 42 encountered extreme horizontal and vertical winds in the eyewall of Hurricane Felix resulting in accelerations of approximately 4G upward and downward. As a result of saftey requirements, the aircraft returned to St. Croix after exiting the eye. The story of this exciting mission and data and movies obtained during the flight will be presented.
