Hangar damage!

Next door neighbor’s doors

We stopped by last weekend to do some work, and this is what we found! Evidentally it was a tad windy the night before, and it looks like the roof lifted just enough for the door brackets to come free from the tracks!

Fortunately, our doors had very minor damage compared to this. Right behind these doors is a nice Cessna 172H. I was able to peek in and saw that the doors did not contact the propeller or other parts of the airplane. If it had, it could have caused significant damage.

I notified the airport manager and she dispatched a couple workers to check it out. By the next day, the doors were fixed.

Our hangar is just to the left of this one. The right picture shows one of our doors. The bracket did come off the track, but it didn’t move much.
