aircraft weather reconnaissance

(
Or weather reconnaissance,) The making of detailed weather observations or investigations from aircraft in flight.

The aircraft may either fly regularly scheduled flights along a fixed route (usually over areas not covered by land or ship stations), or it may fly a special mission to survey a particular weather phenomenon such as a thunderstorm or tropical cyclone. The RECCO code is used to report weather reconnaissance data.
