A pair of hurricane hunter planes landed at the U.S. Coast Guard’s Opa-locka air station Friday with a message for South Florida: Get ready. With the start of the hurricane season less than two weeks away on June 1, the planes helped showcase the advancing technology that has helped improve hurricane forecasting. They also carried Rick Knabb, the outgoing director of the National Hurricane Center, on a farewell lap around the state. The planes, an Air Force C-130 and a P3 originally designed by the Navy to hunt submarines, kind of hogged the show.
