(FOX NEWS) – A National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration aircraft filmed and posted stunning footage on social media of the plane going through the eye of Hurricane Irma.

The latest video, which was shared by the NOAA’s Hurricane Hunters Twitter page, showed the plane flying into the most powerful Atlantic Ocean hurricane in recorded history. The footage captured rain thrashing the aircraft’s window while harsh winds were heard whirling.

After some time, the scenery began to change. The clouds became less gray, the sky turned blue and the rain stopped. The last few seconds of the footage showed clear skies and no rain.

The caption of the video stated: “Video of a flight through the eye of #Irma on #NOAA42. Flights on both the WP-3D Orion and G-IV #NOAA49 continue.”

On Monday, the Hurricane Hunters shared another video of the WP-3D flying through the eye of Hurricane Irma for the first time. The scenic footage, taken by Lt. Rob Mitchell, captured the plane soaring through blue skies and white clouds.
