BANGOR, Maine — A military transport carrying civilians will crash and burn Saturday morning in a mock exercise to see how emergency responders in the area handle a full-scale mass casualty incident.
"We'll start with an in-flight emergency, probably hydraulic failure or something like that," Assistant Bangor Fire Chief Vance Tripp, a coordinator of the exercise, said Tuesday.
