Hurricane Frances....God Bless!

Fri Sep 03, 2004 1:47 pm

Hey guys,

I just wanted to say God Bless to all those in the path of Frances, I hope everything is ok for you all. I myself have just finished preparing my place for the inevitable.

As people have said MCO will be closed for 3 days minimum, the airport authority is still cleaning up from Charley. VS have cancelled all flights up until MON with obviously the possibility of more depending on the destruction of Frances...

Once again to all those in the path of the big b**ch God Bless and be safe..

Regards

VSFT

I cant wait to see all the planes that are going to be ferried here to ride out the storm, like last time with the Gulfstreams.

Lets not forget those who fly INTO the Hurricane on purpose, in the intrest of collecting Data and valuable information about the storms structure.
The link to these guys are here:

To me these are the unsung heroes of aviation and meteorology, whilst other planes avoid a Hurricane, these guys go right through one..
Its not the fall that kills u, its the sudden stop at the end..
