A tornado struck Little Rock AFB, on the evening of April 25, 2011, injuring three people, battering three C-130s, and damaging more than 40 homes, base spokesman SrA. Jim Araos told the Daily Report the following day. All three people suffered only minor injuries. The majority of the destruction happened in the base housing area. The tornado literally split some houses in half, tore the roof off of others, and tossed entire trees through rooms, said Araos. The base exchange and the commissary also received "extensive damage," he said. Here, a Little Rock C-130 lands at lands at McChord AFB, Wash., for a training exercise.
