Hurricane Laura tracking thread

Pity the Super Decathlon’s no longer there. Would’ve loved to fly without engines/simulate a helicopter hover lol.
In all seriousness though. Stay safe, and hang in there, those in TX and LA

Hopefully this hurricane isn’t like Katrina. Katrina was a Cat 3 much like this one is supposed to be. Though, I believe it will strengthen to a 4.


Back to the point. Let’s just hope that this hurricane doesn’t hover over land like Katrina did as this one is also bringing tons of rain. I’m about to fly into it.

I flew into it today, and it was the funnest thing ever!! Winds were 84kts at only 8,000ft 😱 the plane couldn’t even keep a steady altitude and hearing due to the turbulence. It was very fun though

For those who don’t have an Apple device, the article basiclly says that Laura is nearly a Cat. 5 and has winds over 150mph.
