    I can safely speak for everyone when I say 'Phew!'

    Good to se the damage was limited to broken signs and soggy carpets.


    P.S. What is that fuselage in the works Kermit passes in 14:42?

    Looks like he got away pretty lightly!

    That Constellation looks a bit rough.

    Yes, he / museum was fortunate.

    Unfortunately Irma did a massive damage elsewhere.

    Meanwhile in Houston, Harvey caused massive damage (still have flooding issues in parts, 2.5 weeks later!)
    I know a number of people who lost lots, and one who died.

    The four (4!!!) air museums in Houston seemed to have escaped damage, but only just!
    Houston Wing (CAF) at KIWS had water right up to door.
    Lone Star FM survived in its new building
    Texas Flying Legends is OK as well.
    Gulf Coast Wing (CAF) did not hear anything bad happen.

    Does not include Tora group and SB2C (might been flown out)

    Just guessing but it looks a bit like a Douglas A-24.

    Thank you. Makes sense and would be A24B 42-54643.

    Of course Mr Weeks luck doesn't take away from the very real human impact and deaths from Irma.

    The 'Constellation' is a Starliner by the way.
