KY Air Guard unit practices for Thunder Over Louisville

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – On the day before Thunder Over Louisville, the aircraft in town for the Thunder air show took test flights. The Kentucky Air National Guard's Special Tactics Squadron kicked off the practice by jumping out of a C-130.

The team assembled early in the day to plan how to get five men from the air into the water just in front of the great lawn. Then they joined other crews to go over the practice.

"Short range, cargo hauling airplane," said Lt. Col John Ward, a C-130 pilot about the plane. "We can haul cargo. We can drop cargo. We haul passenger, troops and we can drop jumpers. So in peacetime or in wartime operations we can haul cargo or troops."

Five jumpers were practicing, but only four will jump for the show.
"It's def a rush," said jumper Garret, who asked not to use his last name for security reasons. "You def get an adrenaline rush from doing it."
