Max sustained winds 241 kph. Not for the faint-hearted.

This flight to Hurricane #Ian on Kermit (#NOAA42) was the worst Iíve ever been on.

Roughest ride they've experienced they say. Back in the C-121 days an aircraft returned with the avionic racks torn loose and lying in the aisle. Wonder what the flight pay is, danger money?

Interview with pilot of a C-130 that went in.

Do I see many free-lying boxes and other items on the floor in above video?
If true, it does not look like very safety-oriented. A metal box on negative G can easily break someone`s neck.
Anyway, thanks for doing the job!

In the first video that Megan posted everything looks to be strapped down except for the first operator who looked like he came out of his seat.
