Heavy (literally) snow fell overnight in Truckee, CA. on January 15th. Nicknamed “Sierra Cement” for it’s heavy water content, the snowfall at the Truckee Tahoe Airport loaded enough of the thick stuff onto the tailpiece of a private jet parked on the runway to cause the aircraft to tip back onto it’s tail.

This time-lapse video, captured by the Truckee Tahoe Airport’s live streaming webcam, captured the intense snowfall and the ‘tip’ event as it happened.

Part two (see other video at http://tahoetopia.com/story/tahoe-time-lapse-heavy-snow-tips-parked-jet-part-two-pull) captures the next morning’s efforts to clear the runway and pull the plane’s nose back down.
