Hurricane Hunters Lecture Series

June 6

The Hurricane Hunters, based at Keesler Air Force Base, Miss., are hosting a lecture series this storm season highlighting their experiences with tracking hurricanes. The series, which lasts through November.

The 53rd Weather Reconnaissance Squadron, a component of the Air Force Reserve's 403rd Wing, is a one-of-a-kind organization. It is the only operational unit in the world flying weather reconnaissance on a routine basis. The squadron provides surveillance of tropical storms and hurricanes in the Atlantic Ocean, the Caribbean Sea, the Gulf of Mexico and the central Pacific Ocean for the National Hurricane Center in Miami. The unit also flies winter storm missions off both coasts of the United States.

The lectures will feature various Hurricane Hunters who have all tracked storms such as Sandy, Wilma, Rita, and Katrina. Lt. Col. Jon Talbot, a seasoned aerial weather reconnaissance officer, will kick off the lecture series speaking about his experiences as a meteorologist tracking hurricanes.

Future lectures are scheduled for July 11, Aug. 1, Sept. 5, Oct. 3 and Nov. 7.
