Believe that it is now back in Vancouver for extensive repairs.  Captain's
main windscreen was cracked up pretty bad.  Dents in the leading edges of
wings, horizontal stabs., and tail.  Paint took a beating in the nose area.

The a/c had run into a sudden hail storm near Winnepeg with reported hail
stones the size of golf balls.
