The Palm Beach Post - - BACK OF THE FRONT -

Mean­while, Sen. Bill Nel­son said Tyn­dall

Air Force Base on the Pan­han­dle was heav­ily dam­aged, but he promised it would be re­built. The Florida Demo­crat and mem­ber of the Armed Ser­vices Com­mit­tee said older build­ings on the base were de­mol­ished, while newer ones will need sub­stan­tial re­pairs.

The base is home to some of the na­tion’s most ad­vanced fighter jets, and Nel­son said some hangars were dam­aged se­verely. But he gave no in­for­ma­tion on how many planes were on the base dur­ing the storm or how many were dam­aged.
