Fascinating Radar Video

Tue Jun 13, 2006 9:26 am

This video clip shows a timelapse radar recording of FedEx aircraft racing into MEM ahead of a line of thunderstorms.


The amazing part is near the end when the last dozen or so planes turn tail and go around to the back side of the squall line.

Anyone know where one can find other radar recordings like this?
