    Well, it rained for about an hour, then stopped. Now, overcast and calm. Not like the calm before a tornado....just calm.

    Yeah, Wichita got beat up pretty good. I talked to my buddy who rents our house in Wichita and he said he was hiding in the closet while it was all going on. Luckily we didn't get any damage to the house.

    I've heard (unconfirmed) that the twister hit or otherwise damaged a hangar building where the B2 Spirit bombers are kept, as well as Air Force 1....again though, this was just something I read on another car forum...I did a bit of searching, didn't find anything conclusive. (Of course, if our mighty, top secret bomber storage was damaged..are we really gonna leak it on the world's number one search engine? lol)

    I'm in the Air Force. If it happened, I'm sure I will hear about it at work. Haven't looked for any info today though.

    The hanger that got damaged is at the facility that works on Air Force 1, but it and any B2s are not located in Wichita. Goto Kansas.com if you want to see aerial photos of the damage. Spirit Aerosystems had alot of damage.

    people are silly, I did however drive by Spirit Aerosystems (AKA BOEING) where they build the air liners and they did get alot of damage so much that they are not working their employees.
