Storm Ciara aftermath - good news I hope

Post by Archer »

To keep things simple, I thought I'd ask this question in a central topic: any historic aircraft damage due to storm Ciara's passing yesterday? I saw in another post that the Woodford Vulcan suffered some damage to an elevon. I sincerely hope that everything else came through the high winds without major issues. I know that any aircraft parked outside can be at risk in high winds so while the safety of persons is the first priority of course, protecting museum aircraft can be a tricky challenge in the conditions that we saw yesterday.

Saw earlier that the ex Red Arrows Gnat at Cotswold Airport suffered a smashed canopy...

Lindy at Elvington came through ok, I'm told a few small banks moved and some warning flags off the bungs damaged, but the Jet is in one piece. I've seen a report on FB mention damage to the R1 Nimrod at Cosford. But what that is I don't know.
