Does anyone know or have pictures of any damage to parked passenger planes at Opa Locka during the last hurricane? I know that the a/c at Opa Locka are mostly there to be scrapped but wondered if there was any damage. I saw the picture of the 727-100 at PBI that went into the shed but is that the only commercial a/c damaged at any of the southern Florida Airports? Pictures would be helpful...

They had an article in Thursday Sun newspaper here in the UK. It was a low res pic but looked like a DC10 rolled into an ex JAL A300 just a bit back from the left bulkhead leaving a gaping hole in the passenger compartment shaped like the DC10s cockpit! Both had been stored for an age it seems. (Will try and find pics)

Apparently a number of GA's were damaged too at that and a number of other airports in Florida, as they were not secured to the ground, or broke from their securing ropes, starps, chains.
That was a wild pic of the port side, behind the wing breech of the fusulage of the one a/c. Just glad was an older a/c being scrapped, not an active or usable a/c.
