FIRST ON 3: Military target planes wash up overnight at area beaches
WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Folks at two area beaches had quite a surprise this morning. They found what appear to be military target gliders on the the beach.
Jerry and Barbara Kennedy in Oak Island sent us two photos of the plane they ran across on the strand, which is larger than a grown man (above, right). We also received a photo from Carolina Beach (above, left).
We understand these gliders are usually towed behind a plane and used by other pilots for target practice.
