There were some satellite signatures of “transverse banding” noted that morning/afternoon over the southeastern US:

I believe that this was the PIREP:

CHS UUA /OV 80SE CHS/TM 1915/FL363/TP HA343/TB SEV FL350-FL363/RM CLIMB 130 FT ZJX=

Looking at the satellite imagery, they were not in the region of transverse banding (which was located farther inland), but it looks as though they were flying in the general vicinity of a cluster of rapidly developing thunderstorms just off the coast of SC.

Question: why is there no FlightAware flight track data available for DLH444 for 07 March?
