Pilots Breaking Up the Hail in Canada

In Alberta, Canada the Severe Weather Management Society has put together a team of pilots who fly straight into the storm. The goal is to break up the large hail cells before they reach the ground causing billions of dollars in property damage. This can be a crazy and risky job, sometimes feeling more like a ride at an amusement park.

It’s hard to tell yet how much this effort is saving the insurance companies.
