The damage will not prevent the E-4B to perform its mission in the event of destruction of ground control points.
On the basis of Offut Nebraska, a tornado damaged ten aircraft of the U.S. air force, including two so-called “doomsday plane” E-4B.
The representative of the U.S. air force reported that the incident took place last week, June 16, but became aware of it only now.
According to him, the damage will not prevent the E-4B to perform its mission in the event of destruction of ground control points.
In addition, the tornado was damaged eight reconnaissance aircraft RC-135. The wind knocked down trees and damaged buildings based on the U.S. air force.
As you know, the plane “judgment day” is one of the main command centers for the President, Secretary of defense and the joint chiefs. E-4B is protected from electromagnetic waves and is equipped with modern systems and means of communication.
The aircraft is protected from the effects of a nuclear explosion. On Board can be over a hundred people. One of the four “doomsday planes” are always ready to fly and can climb within a few minutes.
Recall that last month the victims of the tornadoes in the United States were 14 people.
