Nebraska weather takes out dad's plane

By kartrac3r

We'll after finally getting back power and watching some news, I realized we made national news and so did my dad's Jet. The bird is a Cessna Citation X. This jet was bought about 5 years ago and the hangar it was in had to be built for it as the pre existing one was too small for it. The irony of ths situation is 2 fold. 1) the new hangar was an addition to the old one which they kept and connected with a breezeway. The old hangar which was built in 1977 still stands with the only damage being from panels form the new one blown into it. 2) The plane that was in the old hangar left on a trip an hour before the weather rolled through...the catcher on this part? The passengers on the trip rented the corporate jet for a personal trip and was "too cheap" to rent the big one that got destroyed. Had he rented the Citation X, both planes would have survived, as the Citation X would have been on the trip and the smaller Citation would have been in the hangar left standing. I'd add some links to articles and videos of the aftermath but its nothing different then the photos I have attached. Needless to say the jet is totalled
