OKC Tornado Damages Aircraft At Wiley Post Airp Po

Sat May 10, 2003 11:36 pm

Another round of tornadoes struck the Oklahoma City area last night. The Weather Channel this morning showed video of aircraft being damaged at the Wiley Post Airport on the northwest side of town. The link below notes hangars also being damaged.

Also looks like more rough weather is going on right now and is also predicted for later today.

Has anyone ever noticed that aircraft damage is almost right up there with the toothless redneck they always find to say "Well it sounded like a freight train. My dogs was a'barkin and then they was gone!" Or "Yessir, it was real quiet. Kept to itself. Kind of weird if'n ya ask me. Them tornadoes is bad news."
