I went out to RDU on Wednesday and caught this flying laboratory and was able to snap a bunch of photos and it was a great time for all...unfortunately, those in NH and NY will not benefit from this late information, but those in ILM and EYW might be able to get out and tour the aircraft. I highly recommend it!!!

They are showing off the plane as part of Hurricane Awareness Week...it was really cool to see the plane, instruments and meet the pilots. Apparently, it is a rarity for them to visit RDU, so I feel very lucky to have gotten the opportunity!
