Hurricane Hunters TDY at Patrick AFB
````````````````````````````````````
It is Tue, 2:15pm EDT (1815z).
   WC-130J Hurricane Hunter "Teal 57" is up with Patrick Dispatch on
372.2, announcing an ETA of 1835z.
   We have had many of the TEALs working here for the past few days,
and I heard ground comms indicating that they will be here for the
next 2 to 2.5 weeks.  They are flying approaches here all day long;
and from their comms with the tower (133.75), it sounds like fairly
basic training for new pilots. Also sounds like they have a fairly
large ground crew here for this TDY.
   Up to now, I had always heard the TEAL callsign used only for
actual Hurricane Hunter missions; for non-Hurricane Hunter missions
they usually use "Hobby."  But for their training here, they are
sticking with TEAL.
