NWS report on the Sun 'n Fun tornado

There were nine tornadoes confirmed by the National Weather Service. Here's the report of the one that hit Lakeland Linder (click to enlarge):

The full report is a pdf located here. And this is the URL in case you want to browse: Man, 95 mph winds. Ouch.

Based on the red arrow (which the NWS put on the map, not me!) it would appear that the tornado went right through the Aviation Explorer Post 491's display, a dead hit. Good job a lot of the warbirds were moved off Rwy 5-23 or else it would have been a strike, counting half a dozen P-51s, an F4U, a gaggle of T-6s.....
