A KHOU 11 viewer sent in photos of a small plane that was flipped upside down by winds. The plane had been tied down with rope.
“Those are half-inch nylon marine ropes. It ripped all those loose,” Terry Sonday said.
Sonday owns the hangar where it’s stored. He drove over to check on the plane when the storm blew in.
“I think the winds were 60-70 miles per hour out here. It was rocking the truck where I was thinking it wasn’t the smartest thing to do, but I was here so ...,” he said.
Another photo showed an executive jet that had been pushed off the runway.
About 15 miles away, the severe weather brought Bush Intercontinental Airport to a ground stop. This was recorded onboard a flight Wednesday night, as passengers rode out the storm.
