Flying an airplane. Lesson number one. Look out the window. If it looks hazardous to board the plane, do not fly the plane. Other than Hurricane Hunters, who the heck fly's a typhoon, whether it's the front, middle, or tail-end of the event? Pilots take ultimate responsibility, but I'm sure a nudge from management was involved.

I would be mistaken. Reports now that it's Flight 222 which is an ATR 72-500.
