In to the Teeth of Irene

Recommended Posts

The narrative: A C130 is sent from KCHO (Charlottesville, Virginia) from the active (03). At 1,600' MSL she turns slightly south of due east to cross over Richmond at 10,000' MSL, on the way to Virginia Beach. From VB crossing the coast, she turns due south for Okracoke Island, North Carolina and climbs to 14,000 MSL. At approimately 60 miles from Oakracoke, she descends to 2,500' MSL. Task is to fly past Oakracoke in order to inspect the island and effects of Irene. Hope you enjoy the shots:
