Same thing happened to me many years ago at KTZR, Columbus -- my brand new (14 hours on it) Cherokee, tied down, was totally destroyed when tie-downs broke and scrambled the plane along with many others.
Were these planes not tied down? Or is 60 mph wind enough that is doesn't matter if you tie them down?
