On Sunday afternoon, a thunderstorm collapsed over Phoenix, and a downward burst of wind collected a towering plume of dust that swept across the region.
To the east, a Southwest Airlines pilot, Ryan Vermillion, captured an unforgettable view of the gathering storm, known as a haboob.
[Arabic weather term ‘haboob’ is apparently troubling for some Texans]
Vermillion was extremely fortunate to witness the blinding wall of dust from the air, as Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport closed just moments after his flight took off.
