OCEAN PARK, Wash. – The Pacific County Emergency Management Agency reports Joint Base Lewis McChord was conducting training in Pacific County overnight. JBLM flew MH 47 Chinook aircraft over the Peninsula just before sunset and 3:00 a.m.
Training on a simulation of threats to the aircraft, Air Force personnel were on the ground carrying what may appear to be large weapons (possibly over the shoulder weapons). They may have been seen simulating shooting the aircraft down.
This was planned to occur somewhere between Ocean Park and Long Beach.
