FORT BRAGG, N.C. (WTVD) —
The military is investigating an “in-flight” incident in the skies over Fort Bragg involving two large cargo planes.
“While conducting flight training, an in-flight incident occurred in which a U.S. Army C-27J and a U.S. Air Force C-130H made contact in the vicinity of Fort Bragg Dec. 1 at approximately 8:30 p.m.,” said a statement from the 440th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Office.
Both aircraft landed safety with no reported injuries to air crew or civilians.
However, both aircraft sustained some damage, and are unable to fly. Air Force spokeswoman Maj. Lisa Ray told the Associated Press that she didn’t know if that was because of damage of if they hadn’t been thoroughly inspected.
Yikes! This could have gotten real ugly, real fast!
