CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) - Airmen at Westover Air Force base may call the "wild blue yonder" home, but Tuesday's winds may have been a little too wild.
A model C5 aircraft used to sit at the base's main entrance, but now just a stump remains. The C5 replica was mangled as storms moved through, and as Lieutenant Colonel James Bishop, Chief of public affairs at Westover A.R.B., told 22News, the path of destruction didn't end there.
Lt Col Bishop said, "It went on, it hit a sign, it fell some trees, there was damage on fences, power lines were down, but there was no real operational damages and the big planes, the C5s we fly were not hurt."
Bishop says there were no injuries reported, and no damage to any base housing aside from minor water damage.
