Extreme Weather Magnet?

August 26, 2011 by Dave Hirschman, Senior Editor

The AOPA 2012 Sweepstakes “Tougher Than a Tornado” Husky got its nickname by surviving the Sun’n Fun tornado on March 31. But the airplane seems to attract extreme weather conditions wherever it goes.
On a recent trip to Wyoming, severe thunderstorms (the unforecast kind) blew through the night after the Tornado Husky arrived. In Montana, its arrival was accompanied by a fierce summer squall. Back at AOPA headquarters in Maryland, it recently went through an extremely rare 5.8-magnitude earthquake. And this weekend’s forecast: Hurricane Irene.

    This might be the first sweeps airplane that people are afraid to win! 😛 I’ll be happy to take it, though.

    That’s a marketing feature. Let the plane bring the adventure and excitement to you!

    Just what I’ve always wanted to experience: Severe weather!! Hmmm, would make a good storm chasing partner.

    It’s remarkable for me to have a web site, which is useful for my knowledge.
