More Tragic Pix From An Aero-Disaster
Everyone says the same thing... "it coulda been worse." But
judging from these pix and others that have crossed our desk, its
hard to imagine that for the moment. Another major GA airport, Ft.
Lauderdale Executive, is but one more treasured aerodrome trying to
recover from last week's Category Three hurricane visit.
In addition to the airplane damage, we have a multitude of
reports about hangar doors that not only were damaged but were
blown down, or in and upon their contents... something that is
guaranteed to render your bird non-airworthy ASAP. Hangar
owners/lessors might want to check on the wind ratings for their
respective hangar doors and what they might do, in the future, to
secure them against similar meteorological assaults.
ANN wishes our best to all concerned and do be advised that if
we can relay any requests or notices that might help those in need,
in any way, we'd be happy to help.
Good luck to you all.
