Sandy Winds Blow Aircraft
Occurred on July 30. 2018 / Phoenix, Arizona, USA
Info from Licensor: "My husband and I were having dinner at Deer Valley Cafe in Phoenix. We were watching the storm roll in from the north. Pretty soon the tower was no longer visible from the sandy winds. As the wind picked up in force, it began to move aircraft tied down. One particular propeller-driven aircraft was being blown around and put on its side by the 74 miles an hour winds. The intense winds at the Deer Valley Airport were said to be tornado-force winds. Considerable damage was caused to the aircraft. I'm sure because my dad was an aircraft mechanic and I was raised around that sort of thing. It was definitely an expensive storm."
