Video: Watch strong tornado toying with heavy aircraft at Turkey airport
Antalya (Turkey), Jan 29: Nobody really stands a chance before Nature's fury. And if such fury continues over a period of days, then the experience can be really terrifying.
On Saturday, January 26, the fifth tornado lashed Turkey's southern province of Antalya in four days and onlookers clicked with shivering hands the monstrous energy it unleashed.
Such was the power of the tornado that hit on Saturday that parked aircraft weighting tons were moved like toys at the Antalya Airport.

Twelve people were reportedly injured in the tornado after two buses and a plane stationed at the airport were turned around by the storm. Two buses and a minibus besides a couple of airstairs had toppled over in the tornado.
Antalya Governor Münir Karaloğlu told local news channel NTV that two aircraft and a police helicopter were badly damaged in the storm. Buildings and power transformer stations in Anatalya also suffered significant damage.
