All-female hurricane hunter flight crew makes history as Dorian strengthens

This group of pilots made history as Hurricane Dorian strengthens and takes aim at Florida.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Aircraft Operations Center tweeted a photo Thursday of its first all-female flight crew on a reconnaissance mission ahead of Dorian's expected landfall in the U.S.

The photo showed Capt. Kristie Twining, Cmdr. Rebecca Waddington and Lt. Lindsey Norman aboard NOAA 49.

The three ladies flew around Hurricane Dorian to collect data over nearly seven hours, covering more than 3,600 miles.
