Bright & Early: This Is Just A Drill Edition

Good morning, Nashville. Today is the day that the Nashville International Airport will be inciting mass panic by way of a “full-scale disaster exercise” involving a pretend plane crash complete with painted-up victims and emergency vehicles and helicopters and fake news crews and probably smoke bombs galore. Since this will be completely visible from both I-40 and Briley Parkway, they want to make sure you know that it’s just a drill. Since your Nashvillest editor may or may not have played the part of a fake victim in a previous “full-scale disaster exercise,” we can tell you that it’ll probably be quite the spectacle. And you know what that means, Nashvillest operatives: Grab us some pictures and dump them in the pool.
