9/27/2015 – Cloud Cities: – Large thunderstorms roam across the hot and humid Florida Everglades, their beauty disguising the destructive force within its clouds, and the havoc that can at times unleash upon the earth beneath it. Their structure clearly visible here, Inflows, outflows and even rain shafts are visible. If you look closely at the cloud tops you can clearly see the strong, billowing, vertical motion of the updraft causing the clouds to rapidly build skyward. This flight (Southwest Airlines 1674 to FLL) flew down Florida's west coast to Naples, then crossing the Everglades on approach to Fort Lauderdale. This was shot at about 25k feet while turning to miss storms. We did fly through the edge of one, being diverted far out over the Atlantic Ocean, then back again to land. Shot with Hyperlapse @12X speed. The full video is 4:16. This is the first one minute of it.
