Narrative:The Twin Otter contacted another aircraft while taxiing on the ramp. The aircraft was then moved off to the side of the apron area and jacked up so that repairs could be carried out. An unusually strong wind came up a few days later and blew the aircraft over. It was broken up and parted out.
