Video: Inside cabin of plane flying through the eye of Hurricane Matthew


The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) today, 7 October, released footage of a research plane flying into the eye of Hurricane Matthew.

As the crew navigates the dense clouds surrounding the hurricane over the Atlantic Ocean, flashes of lightning can be seen around the plane, along with moments of extreme turbulence during which the cabin shakes violently.

According to the NOAA, the aim of this mission was to; “track ‘steering currents’, which helps to reduce the cone of uncertainty in both the intensity and track forecast.”
