Monitoring the Aviation Impacts of Hurricane Florence
The National Hurricane Center is forecasting that Hurricane Florence will be an ‘extremely dangerous major hurricane when it nears the U.S. coast’ sometime Friday. 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.

Other airports likely to be affected
The following list is by no means exhaustive. Hurricane Florence is a large storm and its path is still uncertain. As the storm nears landfall, we’ll be updating this list. For a graphic overview of delays and cancellations, you can use our Delay view.
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.
