Just wanted to state, someone posted on Twitter that their initial penetration was very rough, and the circling was due to them having to clean the cabin up.

Found this, from one of the guys on the NOAA bird during the afternoon flight:

"We were thumped really hard today making our first penetration in Patrica. +3G and -1.5G. The last ten seconds of this video we hit a up draft followed immediately by a down draft. A very sporting day! Airspeed swings from 240 to 170 knots while attempting unsuccessfully to maintain 210 knots. This most definitely is the most powerful storm ever in the western hemisphere. We were thumped so hard that our flight directors keyboard flew off his station and all of his data was dumped. We circled for a hour afterwards as he reconstructed the penetration, made more difficult by the fact the we encountered record setting pressures and airspeeds. This is such a cool job! Thank you Jesus!! B|"
