Only problem is it's a 727-100.

Yeah, definitely a 727, but we'll give him the benefit of the doubt, it looks like a L1011 if you minus the eyebrows

Hope someone didn't forget to set the parking brakes! They would be getting a pink slip effective immediately!

What idiots would leave a 727 at an airport in the path of a Cat II or Cat III hurricane? Should have been ferried out somewhere..........
Direct KNOBS, maintain 2700' until established on the localizer, cleared ILS runway 26 left approach.

What about the fence? Strange the building seems to have been "bent" by the airplane, but the fence still stands! I knew buildings in america were usually very weak, but I didn't know fences were so solid!  Wink

Think that is N720DC, the former Dick Clark Productions 727-100, if I have my color schemes right. Been parked near the Galaxy hangars for a couple of years...

That plane is ALWAYS parked in the same spot at the airport. Every time I drive by, I see it in the exact location. Looks like it FINALLY got moved....HAHA.....

Easy one: The building was hit by the fuselage, the fence was hit by the radome. The radome doesn't exactly need to be as strong as the fuselage.

All 727-100 models (minus those modified with RR engines for UPS) have oval shaped intakes for the #2 engine. All -200s had circular shaped intakes. This is unmistakably a -100.

what a stupid statement. especially the usually part.

I've been to switzerland, and you have a lot of sheds and shacks there, guy. they are called "rustic" and "quaint" and "charming."

you just don't get hurricanes with 145 mile an hour gusts blowing airplanes into them. If you stuck a swiss chalet in front of a 727 rolling at it, it would be flattened.

Fact is, it's just more practical to build "out buildings" like in the picture to a lower standard, since it would be cheaper to repair it once in a while than building it to Cat 5 standards. It's also easier to move the structure later when not made of concrete or heavy steel.

The fence, on the other hand, is meant to protect the airport perimeter and should be strong. It should withstand bumps by airplanes and ramming by trucks and such. Obviously, it can be knocked down, but a composite nose cone of a jet shouldn't do it.

Thus the result you see. All by design, my friend. All by design...

Parking brakes are only effective for around 8 hours after hydraulic system pressure is removed. The parking brake accumulator supplies pressure during this time but because of normal internal leakage in the system it loses it's pressure after about 8 hrs. So if the plane had been left for more than 8 hours it had no parking brakes even if the parking brake lever had been left in the set position.

..or in this case, you learn two new things everyday. I didn't know the parking brake lost its effectiveness after 8 hours of no hydraulic pressure. Guess those chalks are more important that I thought.

It has, when i saw it a few years ago it was on the other side of the field, I thought it was an Ariana Afghan 727 at first sight!

..your color schemes right? So you're able to recognize every private aircraft's paintschemes??    That's just scary.

The USAF.

When my father was stationed at Homestead back in the 60s, they had the KC-135s powered up on the ramp and facing into the wind. I'll have to ask him about the exact details, but it's not unheard of.

Anyone have any current info on USAF hurricane procedures?

It reminded me of after hurricane Andrew in 1992, there was an
abandoned Braniff III plane (red?) left at MIA and the front landing
gear collapsed, I think this was shortly after their third shutdown,
saw pictures of it....anyone have a copy?

Most of the planes that were left and damaged where in line for the chop shop more thank likely. For those that weren't have not flown for a while might have had expired airwortheness cert
