Westover F-15 fighter jets waking residents

Aircrafts are using Westover as a stop-over point

CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – Westover residents have been hearing loud sounds during the early morning hours this past week and a half, but it’s nothing to be alarmed about.

According to the Westover Air Reserve Base, F-15 fighter jets are conducting real-world missions and are using the Westover base as a stop-over point before continuing east.

Due to the time difference between here and their destinations, these air crafts must leave early in order to make it to their destination during normal duty hours.

Westover Air Reserve Base said to expect to hear more sounds from the fighter jets a couple more times throughout the week. However, they said they do not anticipate any more visits in the near future, after these missions are completed.
