Texas hurricane 1942
In '42 Dad was a cadet at Kelly Field near San Antonio. He said that when a hurricane came through that summer, cadets were assigned to sprawl out on the wings of aircraft that could not be evacuated in order to keep them from blowing over. Weather reports were embargoed in newspapers so there is probably no record of the event there.
Has anyone heard of 1) this storm and 2) the idea of using men to keep the planes from being damaged.
