A severe storm with a wind speed of up to 111-km per hour, the strongest in the last three years, damaged three Airbus A.310's, a Boeing 737 and a Fokker F-28 aircraft at Dhaka's international airport. The F-28, parked between two Airbuses, was lifted at least six feet above the ground by the wind fury. It snapped the rope that secured the aircraft and hit the belly of an Airbus with its nose. Its tail lashed the wings and engine of another Airbus.
