The Cirrus in the background looks like it is on top of the Cessna 421, but it's actually under the left wing, which is bent back and on top of the Cirrus behind the cockpit. Because the ballistic chute is active, with the 421's possible leaking tank above it, the fire department has blocked off access until Cirrus comes and de-activates the chute. Both planes are turned 180 degrees from where they were. That's a Cessna 172 wing on top of the 421. (Photos and captions courtesy of Rick Alter, EAA Chapter 291 President.)

This is the remains of the brand new hangar and FBO office, not even in use yet. (Photos and captions courtesy of Rick Alter, EAA Chapter 291 President.)

This is the old FBO office. What they say is true, the bathroom is the only thing left standing. (Photos and captions courtesy of Rick Alter, EAA Chapter 291 President.)

The house is completely gone, only the foundation is left. John and his wife hid in the basement. He got hit in the head from debris and had a 4 inch gash that needed to be stitched up — very lucky. In the background is the middle hangar, the only one left. What you see in front of it is where the first row of T-hangars used to be. Nothing left.

This is the third row of hangars. This is Bill Rohde's hangar, where mine has been for the last six months. I'm glad his and mine were both back in SUX. (Photos and captions courtesy of Rick Alter, EAA Chapter 291 President.)
