When airline pilots are cruising at 30,000 feet, it's important that they stay aware of the changing weather ahead. That includes lightning strikes, powerful thunderstorms and icing conditions.

In this KING 5 special our weather team shows you how Boeing builds planes to withstand the forces of nature, how Alaska Airlines trains pilots to cope with adverse conditions, and learn how pilots land even when fog blankets the runway below.
