Tahoe Time Lapse: Heavy Snow Tips Parked Jet - Part Two- The 'Pull'
Heavy (literally) snow fell overnight in Truckee, CA. on January 15th. Nicknamed "Sierra Cement" for it's heavy water content, the snowfall at the Truckee Tahoe Airport loaded enough of the thick stuff onto the tailpiece of a private jet parked on the runway to cause the aircraft to tip back onto it's tail.
This time-lapse video, captured by the Truckee Tahoe Airport's live streaming webcam, captured the intense snowfall and the 'pull' event, bringing the plane's nose back down, as it happened.
Part one (see first video) captures the heavy snow the night before, and the 'tip' of the tail.
