This storm came in Quickly, but it didn't last long and the Airshow was not affected.

There was some damage across the field. I saw at least one plane turned over onto another in the homebuilt tiedown area after that storm. THe storm also destroyed our 10x10' canopy at the campsite and permanently bent the poles on our tent. Because we left one zippered window on the tent partly open, we spent time at the laundromat at the edge of the field drying out the clothing and sleeping bag. It was quite the storm. We sheltered in the very large and sturdy AOPA tent (think circus tent), which had all the access tent flaps tied closed during the peak of the storm to keep out the wind and rain. Added to a memorable week. Thanks for the great picture.
