The test message was meant to be sent to only one person, but was instead sent to all wing personnel at NATO s Spangdahlem Air Base, 100 miles west of Frankfurt.
The warning was labeled high severity and read: MISSILE INBOUND. SEEK
One of the command post controllers was building a template for this specific thing that was posted....And he inadvertently sent it to everybody, Major Bryon McGarry said as reported by Daily Mail.
However; calm was restored in the airbase after eight minutes when a blue message recalled the missile warning and cleared up the matter.
