6:52 am
so the rain cools the air up in the thunderstorm and that air gets very heavy and gets thrown to earth in a sort of violent way. when it strikes the earth, it spreads out because it can't fall new further so it pushes outward and it can cause a left damage -- a lot of damage in a short period of time. is it a tornado or is it the not a tornado. we'll go to tyler. >> the key did i have reps with the tornado, we have the wind wrapping into the system. so everything is getting twirled into the middle. that is why when we see damage paths, usually everything is start of strewn about in some random direction with a downburst, all the wind are blown outward so with some of the pictures you see everything laying in one direction and that is where we get the stern straight line winds that we often throw around. >> the wind comes -- it is like it comes down and then spreads out. >> that's right. >> and those winds can be like
6:53 am
1 other miles per hour. >> upwards of that actually. very strong. >> so tyler, you were mentioning to me that downbursts are also dangerous to aircraft. a couple of famous incidents. >> very dangerous to aircraft. one occurred in 1985 back in dallas a couple of books were written it about it. even a movie was produced on. it the strongest microburst which is what we call a downburst that is small was actually recorded at andrews air force base in d.c. here. the peak wind gust was actually over 150 miles per hour and incident ring fact here was that the president's plane was landing seven minutes after that microburst was recorded on the same runway. >> tyler, who was the president in 1983? >> ooh, good question. >> don't do that. >> were you born in 1983.
