Farewell (FWL), Alaska 1964.
High winds up to 90 mph at Farewell raised havoc with aircraft parked on the
field. This one suffered major damage with a torn wing. FAA housing
for FSS and
maintenance personnel can be seen in the background.
next night winds flipped this aircraft over on its back. Blowing snow
the remaining good wing and a grader operator ran over it. Owner, Bob
towed the what was left of the aircraft to the dump and set it on fire after
the engine and other items of value.
