Hurricane Hunters Moved from Macdill

Recommended Posts

We moved to Lakeland, at Lakeland Linder Airport. The Air Force wanted their hangar back, after N.O.A.A. being there over 20 years. Our relocation went out for bid between Lakeland and Clearwater, Lakeland won.

They built a new hangar and were over joyed to have us. Aviation is big at Linder, they have their Sun N Fun air show every year, kinda like the big OshKosh air show.  Im not so happy about the move, I live 10 min from Macdill, now a 45 min drive to Lakeland.

The Air Force hurricane group is still there, I work for N.O.A.A.

The difference is, the AF does storm reconnaissance/tracking. N.O.A.A. does weather research. We have much more equipment and multiple radar on our aircraft.
