Whirlwind causes considerable damage to light aircraft at Malta IAP

A whirlwind in the afternoon caused considerable damage at Malta International Airport. Two light-aircraft parked at apon-1 flipped over - a Piper PA28-161 Warrior II '9H-AEZ'  and a Piper PA28-161 Cherokee Warrior II '9H-FLY' - while a third light-aircraft - a Cessna U206B Super Skywagon '9H-ADW' - was pushed against the perimeter fence. Lufthansa Technik's hangar at apron-2 was also damaged. (1-Feb-2014)
