Looking For In-flight Weather Pics For Research

Fri Jan 04, 2008 8:36 pm

Hello everybody,

I'm a graduate student doing some research on weather related accidents in general aviation and I could use your help! I need to collect in-flight pictures of various degrees of severe weather. I'm having trouble coming up with enough good pictures to use for my study. Most of the pictures I'm finding of weather are either taken from the ground or are focused on the aircraft and not the sky.

The images should be clear and be primarily focused on the weather (some parts of the airplane in the picture are fine). I really need a good sampling of weather in these images, from clear skies to severe thunderstorms.

The images will be used in tests to see which features of the weather different pilots use to make weather-related decisions.

You, or the photographer who took the pictures, will be credited for your help. No images will be used commercially in any way and no images will be reprinted without your consent.

You can post the pictures here or email them to me at Any help you could offer would be greatly appreciated. Also, if you know of any good resources for finding these types of pictures I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks so much for your help.
