Narrative:
Two aircaft became victims when they were blown over by a heavy storm and ended upside down at Wilkes-Barre Wyoming Valley Airport - WBW/KWBW, Forty Fort, Pennsylvania.
A Cessna 150 received minor damage and a Piper PA-25-235 Pawnee C, N8784L, was substantial damaged.

The heavy weather also damaged tents and a bandshell at the 125th Anniversary Celebration in Forty Fort and downed tree branches and power lines across Luzerne County. A cold front and severe thunderstorms rumbled through the Wyoming Valley on Friday, sending down rain, hail and heavy winds before giving way to calmer skies.

Luckily nobody was hurt.
