This is the place where the majority of the warbird (aircraft that have survived military service) discussions will take place. Specialized forums may be added in the new future

Multiple tornadoes hit my area of Minnesota last night.
Although no loss of life has been reported, the Faribault airport took a direct hit. I don't know to what degree RARE Aircraft is impacted, but initial pics don't look good.http://www.foxnews.com/us/2018/09/21/st ... esota.html

I hope you and yours are OK.
Tornadoes ate frightening, especially at night.

Thanks, Brother Tulio!
Neither Mrs. K nor I were home, but a son watched this bad boy rotate past just over the hill from our subdivision.
RARE Aircraft at Faribault haven't blogged or Facebooked any updates yet, but the news suggests an EF-2 had a fun time tossing stuff around. To my knowledge nobody was hurt over there...could've been so much worse.

Although I remember having been to,Faribault during one of my trips, I do not have a clear memory of any aircraft,there, whether warbirds or not.
That twister looks sinister. I saw once, from atop a building and from miles away, four twisters in the Sugarland TX area.
Like many people in this here,US of A, I have been under tornado warnings, and have actually seen quite a few of them.
They are certainly, a recurrent nightmare of mine.
I repeat, I am glad you and yours are fine, and that your aviation community seems to have been,spared.
