On 21 October, a severe storm hit Memphis Airport, United States. A surveillance video recorded a jet bridge at concourse A (gate A27) being blown away like a leaf. During the same storm, a UPS Boeing 757-200F (N443UP) was seriously damaged whilst parked as loose containers and equipment flew around.
The airport authorities tweeted the surveillance video and added in relief that: “Fortunately, nobody was injured in this incident.” On the video of the UPS Boeing 757-200F, you can see damage to fuselage and engine casing. The aircraft is still on the ground at moment of writing.
Check out this surveillance video from Gate A27 at MEM during Monday's tornadic storm:
