Why you should always tie down your 747

Remember the episode a few months back where the boys discussed the LSA that wasn't tied down and flipped over during some high winds?

Well check this out:

Maybe I'm too cynical, but, I'm not buying it.

I don't see it failing to move backward if the wind was that strong. And the one next to it is motionless.

The 747 that is moving doesn't have any engines on the wings to give it a more forward CG.
