NO RADAR ON ANY A/C SHOWS TURBULENCE. FURTHER CLARIFICATION

FYI, CNN. Aircraft radars never show "turbulence". Us "over-paid appliance operators" have to figure that out on our own. It's not an exact science.

The radar on my G200 shows turblance. Just sayin'.
Those moron 121 drivers flew through a TS with the seat belt sign off. No news story here.

Seriously Jason? "turblance". Our radars show "turbulence" but only in a 40 mile range on the ND. I applaud your professionalism calling the Pt121 drivers "morons". You were on board to see them "fly through the thunderstorm with the seat belt sign off" were you?

OK, I stand corrected. Let me rephrase... The 757 radar does not show turbulence.

The article states the seat belt sign was "ON".

@Mike
I take it the G200 has some kind of Doppler derived turbulence display?

I didn't read it as the radar showing turbulence but rather indicating convective activity that can cause turbulence. I understand there are things such as CAT, however.
