Stennis International Airport was transformed into an enemy zone Thursday night.
Without any lights from the building or the runway, night vision goggles were the only way you could see anything- including the newest C-130J.
These types of flight training missions are conducted almost on a weekly basis, and have been ever since Keesler began testing the new aircraft in 1999.
During times of war, the "flying jennies" enter into combat- dropping and loading everything from tanks to food and other supplies.
And they are definitely benefiting from the C-130J, which crew members believe is a step up from the former C-130.
The "Flying Jennies" operate under the 403rd Wing located at Keesler.
