This lil rouge cloud zoomed through at speed at around 600 ft because it could.
The Fueling Facility and Aerowork Hangar looking fine.
The WX Stn has been removed and currently in ICU awaiting appropriate Whiz Bang Magical gear to put it back to work we have the technology. Hopefully back by Friday but no promises as WX looking a tad dodgy depends on how many Spiders I have to re house.
It's a two man job to get it down and thanks to Gary H for his assistance.
After that Gary heard RVH calling so after some top shelf AVGAS for RVH.
