All-female hurricane hunter flight crew makes history.

First all-female hurricane hunter flight crew hoping to inspire girls and save lives

The first all-female hurricane hunter flight crew for The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is working hard.

They are part of an expert team of scientists who are trying to gather as much data as possible about Hurricane Dorian as it barrels toward the East Coast.

Making history

NOAA says this is the first time an all-female crew of three pilots has flown a reconnaissance mission for the agency.

The crew featured Capt. Kristie Twining, Cmdr. Rebecca Waddington, and Lt. Lindsey Norman.

WeatherNationTV has a nice piece on exactly what hurricane hunters do for NOAA.
