There were some tense moments at Long Beach Airport that was all part of a massive training exercise on Friday morning.

The airport simulated a mock disaster involving a C-130 military transport and a small private plane.

Lasting for two hours, the drill included participants from several different agencies while medics treated nearly 100 people who posed as patients.

The Federal Aviation Administration requires the airport to a hold a drill like this every three years.
