DESCRIPTION OF ACCIDENT: N1161X was parked in a hangar undergoing repairs by Antique Aircraft Restoration,
Marathon Airport (MTH) Marathon, FL 33050 on September 9, 2017. Hurricane force
winds from Hurricane Irma caused a storm surge, damaging the hangar doors and filling
the hangar to the 31" to 45" inch level with sea water. This resulted in the landing gear,
inner belly, and main and wing spars being marinated in sea water. Although the engine
and avionics were exposed to the salt water environment, it does not appear that they were
e DESCRIPTION OF DAMAGES: See attached photos. Damage includes but may not be limited to that described below: **PHOTOS**
The aircraft was marinated in salt water at the highest levels of 45"for at least 18 hours. The
repair shop reported the aircraft in the hangar were found covered in sea weed. They were
subsequently moved outside on the ramp and subsequent rains washed away the debris.
Due to the lack of electrical power and fresh water, no efforts were made to mitigate corrosion.
As previously noted, the landing gear, inner belly, and main and wing spars being marinated in
sea water, and the engine and avionics were exposed to the salt water environment.
