    Once, a storm that spawned tornadoes walked an empty 707 clear across the field I based at at the time.

    Without engines installed, and no fuel, the CG of an aircraft
    is very near tipping on it's tail. Add strong head winds, **** happens.

    Some of our Navy RA-3B's are at DM. They first flew in 1950 and some are still test bed aircraft for missiles in California for Raytheon. I think they still have five, sixty two years of service and still going. Check out the websites Vap61Vap62 or Vappers.
