A Chinook model CH47 military helicopter made an emergency landing safely in a big old field in Hadley last night. The copter is based at Bradley Air National Guard Base in Connecticut and operated by the Connecticut Army National Guard.
The big bird was on a routine training flight and fortunately managed a safe landing near the busy commercial malls nearby. Today by the way, marks the 68th anniversary of D-Day.
After landing the helicopter was safely secured
