Misfortune of Others
Itís again time to learn from the unfortunate weather encounters of others. This time weíll focus on accidents where late-summer-into-autumn weather was a factor.
While some readers probably welcome a refresher on turbulence, shear, and thunderstorm dangers, others might see it as beating a dead horse. But Wx Smarts is that intersection between my 30 years of forecasting and your thousands of hours of instrument time. Within these articles I guarantee thereís always something that wasnít fully covered in flight school or the FAA circulars. Whether itís more detail or just an unusual situation, the goal is to keep you interested, thinking outside the box, and having more insight into aviation meteorology than the average pilot.
