Farewell (FWL), Alaska 1964. 
High winds up to 90 mph at Farewell raised havoc with aircraft parked on the air
field.  This one suffered major damage with a torn wing.  FAA housing for FSS and
maintenance personnel can be seen in the background.

The next night winds flipped this aircraft over on its back.  Blowing snow covered 
the remaining good wing and a grader operator ran over it.  Owner, Bob Allen,
towed the what was left of the aircraft to the dump and set it on fire after removing 
the engine and other items of value.
