A PNP Rescue Skirts Bad Weather To Arrive Safely!

photo 1 (12)Pearland Regional TX (LVJ) to Hooks TX (DWH) to pick up Simon (a collie I recently flew from Hammond LA to Hooks), then to Arlington TX (GKY) to drop off Simon and board Sassy (collie/sheltie mix) and Nikolette (sweetest little hound mix) for transport back to Hooks to fosters.

Ended up landing at Hooks just as a convective SIGMET was issued. What would’ve been 40nm direct turned out to be 150nm, skirting and threading storm cells to 40,000 with heavy rain, lightning and hail. Slipped into Pearland during a break.

    Thanks so much for what you do. I transport on the ground, and I’m waiting for the day I get to take a collie. They’re the best!(And loud!)
