Tornado versus C-130

Check out the aftermath photos from a tornado that dropped into the airbase
home of the 166 Airlift Wing, DE ANG. It is a less-than-subtle reminder of
the power of mother nature! Check 'em out at

Saw some on the Philly TV stations. It resembled the aftermath of kids playing airplanes. IIRC, that was an F2 funnel.

I did; the C-130 would have been much worse off though.

I wouldn't think you have much experience with those violent winds where you live, Jules. ISTR reading that most of them happen here in North America. They're becoming all too common here in the Northeast lately.

Err, me too. Not much of a contest, I'd have thought. Now, if you'd written "Cyclone vs C-130", I wouldn't have thought of the Wright aero engine AT ALL, no-siree Bob. :)

the no name hurricane that inspired the storm movie hit my back yarrd, took down a 90' red oak without hitting a building. if that tree had fallen over, it could NOT miss a building, but the hurricane took it down and laid it neatly in the yard. lost a phone line and became a believer in nature.

Roundy-round winds but much bigger area covered and hurricanes can spawn tornadoes. Indeed, that's where this mentioned storm originated.

Also - C130 is a Hercules isn't it?
