Exercise shows off military might

Posted: Updated:
PADUCAH - A military jet landed in Paducah on Wednesday.

The C-130 Hercules arrived at Barkley Regional Airport along with a Cessna and a Blackhawk helicopter.

The three aircraft brought members of the Kentucky Air National Guard, who will help with earthquake response and recovery in McCracken County.

The group's commander says he wants Kentuckians to know about the military assets available in the commonwealth.

"When you say response, 12 hours is our book answer. It will be much faster than that," said Lt. Col. Ash Groves of the Kentucky Air National Guard.

The exercise was part of a week-long earthquake recovery drill happening in 7 states.
