High Winds Damage 3 Airplanes At Orlando International Airport, Causes Delays

Orlando, Fla. -

According to airport officials, high winds have damaged three airplanes, one of which was blown into the former Airtran building. Two other planes hit each other then were knocked into a fuel truck.

Winds at the airport reached as high as 41 mph causing flight delays for a short period. OIA officials have said flight have since resumed normal operation.

None of the major airlines are believed to have been involved because the Airtran building is beyond the "zip line" and away from terminal and airside gate operations.
