A movie used in Air Force Pilot Training
16 December 2014 | by c-arnoldjrSee all my reviews

I used this movie to introduce Air Force student pilots to the science of meteorology in the late 1960's at Craig AFB in Selma Alabama. During the four years I was assigned to Craig AFB this movie became an integral part of the weather course for over 2000 Air Force pilots I taught, all university graduates many of whom were Air Force Academy graduates. The movie was used as a motivational tool and always kept the student's attention as the hazards of flying in weather were introduced to them. This movie could still be used today to inspire young children to consider a career in meteorology. I give this movie 9 stars for its content, scientific credibility, and presentation. It includes such topics as fronts and air masses, global circulation, thunderstorms, tornadoes and hurricanes. It even includes material on climate change which the world is debating today.
