On 8 December 2011, Cyclone Friedhelm, an explosively deepening cyclone, passed across the UK, causing exceptionally strong winds over Scotland and strong winds over much of the UK. A research flight through this intense cyclone was undertaken as part of the DIAMET project. This article gives an account of the flight as experienced by the authors, who were aboard the aircraft. We describe the objectives of the flight and the measurements obtained, and use photographs taken during the flight to illustrate the cloud structures observed.
