A Cessna 208B Grand Caravan sustained substantial damage when it was flown over during a storm at Raleigh/Durham International Airport, NC (RDU).
The aircraft was parked on the UPS ramp when a thunderstorm hit the airport at 17:22 hours local time. The temperature dropped from 32°C to 23°C in 27 minutes time and the wind speed increased from 5 knots to 22 knots at 17:54 hours. Wind gusts of 43 knots were recorded. The airplane was blown onto its back, causing substantial damage to the tail and rear fuselage. A propeller blade was bent, the right hand wing tip folded and the wind screen was shattered.
