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.

Anyone have photos of the airframe at its destination?
