Many have no idea how accurate the Microsoft flight simulator is, you can really learn how to fly an airplane with the program. Even the weather in the program is connected to the National Weather Service, so no matter where you fly, you fly in the weather that's in that area. Years ago just for kicks, I flew into the eye of a hurricane near Florida in a King air twin-engine aircraft. Flying through the walls of the hurricane is very turbulent, but it was surprising how inside the eye itself how much, they air was. So I spiraled down descending almost to sea level, and then spiraled back up following the eye of the storm as it moved. But I've been through too many hurricanes in the East Coast myself, than to do that in real life. Congratulations, Favored, Voted & Featured It, as one of my FAVORITES of the day.

Even with the approaching storm, the North Carolina surf fishermen and storm chasers are still seeking the excitement one finds on the beautiful south end of Topsail Island...
