As part of an International study to be able to deliver more accurate weather forecasts across the South Atlantic, a NASA ( National Aeronautics and Space Administration) ‘flying laboratory’ is planning to operate over St Helena this coming weekend, to undertake a series of weather-related measurements.

The precise times of when the aircraft will be circling the Island are not yet known, however SHG understands that the aircraft will undertake three circuits over the Island at different altitudes, before heading off to the South West coast of Africa.
