  • C-130s fly over Charlotte

    The skies over Charlotte Saturday were populated by an unusual sight — eight C-130 Hercules planes in the North Carolina Air National Guard’s 145th Airlift Wing. They flew in formation at only about 1,000 feet to train and to celebrate the mission of the C-130 unit. The planes left the Charlotte Air National Guard base at Charlotte Douglas International Airport in the early afternoon and flew to a Guard base in Stanly County to conduct a simulated cargo drop, probably pallets of sandbags, Capt. Monica Ebert of the N.C. Air National Guard said. The planes then flew over the skyline as they returned to Charlotte.
