Recommended Posts



Friday, 17 Dec 2021, C-130H # 82-0055 - was damn close (less than 2”) but no impact to the bridge/acft.  Occurred off I-10 as you get off I-10 West  for Route 87, turning left to head to Navarre (bridge is I-10).  Acft ended up at Hurlburt Field as scheduled.

SANTA ROSA COUNTY, Fla -- A C-130 aircraft was seen being transported Friday afternoon on I-10 in Northwest Florida.

Florida Highway Patrol says the moving of the aircraft was permitted and approved over dimension transport. It was heading to Hurlburt Field.

According to FHP, the C-130 did have to change lanes to a lower portion of the road/bridge so it would fit under. FHP states the aircraft never became stuck under the Highway 87/I-10 overpass in Milton.

FHP says this did impact traffic on the highway.
