What was that rumble? F-15s left Westover Wednesday morning

F-15s took off around 10:00 a.m.

CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – Several visiting F-15 Strike Eagle fighter jets took off from Westover Air Reserve Base late Wednesday morning.

Westover Public Affairs Master Sgt. Andrew Biscoe told 22News the fighters, assigned to the Air Combat Command, were passing through and were ultimately headed to another U.S. base.

Westover’s proximity to Europe and its long runways make it a reliable stop for military aircraft for all types of support.
