Windstorm Airplane Damage at Chandler Municipal Airport (KCHD)

Arizona's Chandler Municipal Airport was hit by a freak storm on Tuesday night that damaged or destroyed an estimated 30 airplanes. Local meteorologists blamed the damage on microbursts they estimated at peak speeds of around 60 mph, though the extent of the damage to some of the airplanes would suggest even stronger winds were to blame.
