Heavy Damage to BASI Research Airdock

Published by BASI on August 8th, 2016:

“A violent storm that struck St. Andrews, Manitoba on July 20, 2016 destroyed the BASI Research Airdock and the Misameg MB80 research airship. The storm generated tornados that touched down 30 kilometers west of the BASI Airdock. This structure had withstood high winds for five years, but a storm of this magnitude had not been seen in 30 years according to the St. Andrews Airport Manager. The navigation tower clocked the winds at 68 knots (126 km) before their gauge failed. The staff in the tower worried for their own safety.” by Barry Prentice
