Hail-fighting pilots fly into the hearts of Prairie storms to limit damage on the ground
from Calgary Herald
Alberta's hail-fighting pilots prevented an average of three storms a day from delivering huge hail this summer — one of their busiest years ever. The Alberta Severe Weather Management Society's team of 11 pilots, aided by three meteorologists on the ground, flies directly into the fiercest storm cells to break up hail. Their efforts often save Albertans — and their insurance companies — from dealing with the havoc wreaked by the most threatening storms.
