A bit of history:


Quote from article:
"The Hurricane Hunters organization actually goes back to 1943, when on a barroom dare, two Army Air Corps pilots flew a propeller-driven, single engine AT-6 "Texan" trainer into the eye of a hurricane.
Maj. Joe Duckworth actually flew into the hurricane twice that day - once with a navigator and later with a weather officer.
His efforts paved the way for the unit's activation a year later at Gander, Newfoundland with the mission to fly weather tracks between North American and allied Western Europe.
Since then, the unit has been headquartered in New Hampshire, Florida, Bermuda, England, Saudi Arabia, Georgia, and Puerto Rico before settling at its current location."
