D-M to help those making claims after sonic boom

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Davis-Monthan Air Force Base is offering to provide legal assistance for those who may have suffered property damage because of Wednesday's sonic boom.

The D-M legal office will answer questions related to filing claims, getting damage estimates and the claim process in general.

The sonic boom, which was heard and felt through Tucson and surrounding areas at about 7:45 p.m. Wednesday, was caused by an aircraft from Luke Air Force Base's 425th Fighter Squadron. The base near Phoenix confirmed that one of its F-16 jets went supersonic just northwest of Kitt Peak during a training mission in the Sells area.

The altitude the aircraft broke the sound barrier was legal for supersonic flight in the area.

The D-M legal office can be reached at (520) 954-0146.

Those asking for assistance should be prepared to provide name, address, telephone number and email address to facilitate delivery of claim paperwork.
