Flight Encampment, Saturday night I believe… as a thunderstorm approaches.  This was at Flight Encampment back in 2004 and the instructors and cadets had to quickly get the aircraft safe before everyone took shelter inside.  Up until I went to Louisiana a year later, I had never heard a thunderstorm that loud before… made the ones in Cleveland, OH seem like well, nothing.

By the way, that’s an anvil cloud, not a funnel.  No rotation.  No tornadic activity.  It’s not even on the proper side of the storm for one. ;)
