President's plane lands at Westover

Posted: Updated:

Area residents are used to seeing C-5s and F-15 fighter jets, but one of President Barack Obama's planes flew over Western Mass Monday.

It landed at Westover Air Reserve Base in Chicopee Monday afternoon.

It's only called "Air-Force One" when the president is onboard.

The plane dropped Obama off in New York for an event earlier on Monday.

Westover officials said the base has a secure landing field occasionally used by presidential aircraft.
