In November 1967, operations received a call that a tropical storm was headed our way and we should take what ever actions we could to protect ourselves.  All the flyable aircraft were flown to safety.  The rest were tied down and we went to the safest buildings we had, the Clubs.

Typhoon Freda came ashore, clobber us and then petered out.

We lost some paint but the only damage the ships received was from a flying trash can from the Korean compound.

The same could not be said for our tents. On the right, the pile of "pickup sticks" is the remains of the double aluminum framed tent we had for working on Hueys.  It was tied to sand filled 55-gallon barrels.  It hovered about a hundred feet in the air before crashing to the ground.  We were hit so bad we received Federal Aid (new tents).
