Device found at hangar probably was WWII relic

BOWLING GREEN City police were called to the Wood County Regional Airport Tuesday after what looked like an explosive device was found there.

The device turned out to be an initiator for a land mine, likely a relic from World War II, police said.

The device was found near the hangars that were heavily damaged in a recent storm and most likely belonged to someone who rented space inside the hangar and stored some personal items there.
