The focus of this paper is to investigate proper aircraft management for safety on an airfield. This is accomplished by looking at lift caused by powerful winds to the aircrafts stored on an airfield, and the tension it places on the rope that secures them. This work could be used to determine when aircrafts are in high-risk and need to be stored either in hangars or moved to other airports prior to storms. The calculations used to determine these conclusions are also explored in the paper.
