Default Qantas Yam 787 ....damaged

As discussed in the 200 scale section, looks like YAM was damaged by a tornado in Brisbane.
Thank you DAC member StillAir for providing the link..

I watched that video and it was something to see that plane move! I still don't get how it was so severely damaged from watching the video...are they that fragile!?

I thought tornados were mostly a North American weather phenomenon.

They happen in many places round the world, in the UK we get loads of them but they are tiny.

Well I found this on the interweb:

"Where are tornadoes most common in the world?

Tornadoes have been recorded on all continents except Antarctica and are most common in the middle latitudes where conditions are often favorable for convective storm development. The United States has the most tornadoes of any country, as well as the strongest and most violent tornadoes."

Tornadoes are very rare in Australia, there was also another one west of Sydney around Bathurst a couple of months ago.

How could they not have buttoned down the hatches? There must have been damage to the hinges and surrounding areas of the skin around the cargo doors for starters. Maybe the blow came on too fast? Wonder what the extent of the damage was. Doug

What actual damage was recorded ? The article only speculates damage and the video does not appear to show any significant damage occurring either ?

Only suspected damage, the aircraft was inspected and nothing was found.
