Airports in the areas expected to be hit hardest by the hurricane have already begun to cancel flights beginning late Wednesday and on Tuesday, Boeing moved any flyable 787 from its production facility in South Carolina to Washington.

Hurricane hunting

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is sending its Gulfstream IV and WP-3D aircraft to survey the storm. The Gulfstream N49RF (NOAA49) flies above the storm to help forecast its future path, while the WP-3D N42RF (NOAA42) flies directly through the storm collecting data.

The map below shows only NOAA aircraft. When NOAA aircraft are active they will be visible on the map.
