Mock Hurricane Irma relief aid to devastated St. Croix Island. Category 5 Hurricane Irma continues to roll across the Caribbean actively en route to the west gulf Florida coast devastating the islands in her path with up to 95-99% of buildings destroyed on some of the islands.
Flying Dash 8-Q400 out of KFLL-Fort Lauderdale, FL with real-world weather sustained winds of 17kts with gusts of 38kts @ 9:37 a.m. 09.09.2017 with Irma 284 miles to the south. Had to fly due east for 60 miles to circumvent the hurricane before turning 138* directly to TISX-St. Croix Island airport.
Mock Hurricane Relief to devastated Puerto Rico. Hurricane Maria nearly flattened all of Puerto Rico that has 3.4 million inhabitants that knocked out 100% of water supply and the electrical power supply followed up with severe flooding.
