Yesterday, April 4, Wichita, Kan. (some 300+ miles north of DFW, by the way) had considerable unsettled weather and, in some parts of town, downpours and hail. What really got people's attention, however, was a considerable number of "cold air funnels" over much of Kansas that came from the weather system. One such funnel is shown in this picture. Typically, "cold air funnels" are weak and seldom touch the ground, but because they look so much like tornadoes they really get noticed. Photographers, amateur and otherwise, were out in force taking pictures of all these funnels yesterday. One such picture showed a plane going ahead and landing in the midst of all that. The picture went onto "Facebook," and from there the discussion really took off. That the pilot was being reckless, that while "cold air funnels" are usually harmless that rule is for people and property on the ground and certainly not meant to endorse flying near them, etc. On the other side of the argument, some pilots shot back that in such a situation as pictured, it would be even worse to fly back into the "hell" that was up above. Particularly for us non-pilots, it's hard to know who's right. But the picture certainly has generated the attention. Any opinions here?
