A week after Align's annual funfly, Taiwan was hit with typhoon Sinlaku. The flying field was damaged by wind and flood. Here is a video showing the aftermath.

Wow. Nice vid. The second song choice was perfect...

Oh, and what are those machine guns doing at a funfly? (as shown in the thumbnail picture and at 20 seconds into the video)

A month prior to the Funfly, Align built a mini-dam by the creek to stop floods. Luckly they did, the damage could have been much worse without it.

As the song goes, things can only get better. Hope they'll have the field repaired soon!
