Witness nature's fury as hurricanes Camille and Gilbert crash onto the Gulf coast.

"It's one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen," says Hugh Willoughby, relishing the unusual object of his profession. "That's one of the reasons why people fly into hurricanes." Join Willoughby on a data-gathering flight made into the eye of Hurricane Gilbert in September 1988. NOVA obtained spectacular footage of the storm's center - a canyon of clear blue sky surrounded by a wall of clouds 10 miles high.

Watch how these highly-trained scientists routinely - and carefully - fly into the world's most destructive storms to discover what makes them tick and to measure their intensity and probable path. Then hear first-hand accounts of Hurricane Camille, the most devastating storm ever to strike the United States. As Rob Sheets, director of the National Hurricane Center says, "Even if we could issue the perfect forecast, it does no good unless you motivate people to take the right action.
