The Hurricane Hunter

Major Sean Cross is a pilot with the Hurricane Hunters, the world famous Air Force unit that flies directly into hurricanes.

He plays a direct role in early hurricane detection and preparation for the United States and other countries around the world. While he does have inside knowledge of impending dangers, that still doesn’t prevent him, his family, and his personal property from being damaged by the storms. Something that was learned the hard way during 2005′s infamous Hurricane Katrina.

This is his story.
