Hail Storm Madness

Hail, No!

On the 20th December 2018, Instructor Peter Zhang captured this wonderful photo in the midst of a hail storm over the Sydney Basin. As beautiful as this natural phenomena may be it rolled through destroying everything in its path. As a result many aircraft were damaged with dents, marked paint and creaked windscreens.

Even the birds took cover for protection as ice the size of golf balls flung from the base of a mighty cumulonimbus cloud.
