The Missisippi Wing’s hanger was struck by a tornado on Augist 17th. It was a direct hit. The storm pushed the hangar doors out of the track and damaged multiple airplanes. A few other planes on the ramp (KMBO) were also damaged as well as one other hanger. Being a direct hit on an airport means the wind readings are likely to be accurate. A peak speed at KMBO of 97 was recorded.
Wing members cleared all debris from the airport and with help from the City of Madison, secured the hangar the following day.
