    Wasn’t that plane a tethered display, not an active duty plane?

    That was an F-15 on static display at the Tyndell AFB visitors center. Tyndell is where F-15 pilots are trained.

    ALL F35's have been grounded worldwide since the crash of one a couple weeks ago at MCAS Beaufort, SC

    We could sure use the break down here. Cooler weather moving in over the weekend, but water temps are still 80°+.
    Leslie is still staggering like a drunk out in the Atlantic, and another system is building off the African coast.

    Just wanted to say thanks to everyone for your thoughts and good words for us down here.
    Daytona was unaffected. Biketoberfest is still a "go".

    OK from viewing this -- I think the key is to have a RED roof -- looks like thing with red roofs survived better than the others

    Those Spanish tile roofs are very durable. We had them on the barracks and quarters when I was stationed in Panama, and those roofs were over over 40 yrs old, then.

    The structures with those roofs are typically concrete stucco... again, more durable than wood or tin.
