It is an early evening, easy flight from Cleveland Lorraine County Regional (KLPR) to Nashville (KBNA). Not!

Warren departs, climbs to 8,000 as he heads on course, steps up to 11,000 and then the fun begins, first ice and then a whole colorful cocktail of weather in a very unusual pattern! Spoiler alert: a tornado is involved here. What would you do? Speaker bio:  Our very own Warren Bruhl, DC, presents a flight…

Time permitting, we'll look at a second scenario, a…
