Fly safely around summer storms by getting to know them
As summer arrives and the days get longer, pilots may let their guard down when it comes to weather. Icing and large hail may certainly be less of a factor during the balmy dog days, but the June, 1999 American MD-80 runway excursion and the Delta L-1011 crash in August 1985 are some of the incidents that underscore the hazards of flying during the warm season. Thunderstorms can be awesomely beautiful phenomena when viewed from the ground.
