Pilots of these Piper Super Cub glider tow planes were forced to act quickly and get their aircraft in the air to avoid danger to nearby ground handlers as a microburst passes over the airfield creating wind gust up to 55 kts.

Notice other students, pilots, and handlers sitting on a parked sailplane to prevent it from also blowing away.

All aircraft and personnel managed to avoid injury at the USAF Academy Airfield in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
