It is a Drill at Tulsa International

Tulsa, OK – It looked real but it wasn't!

First responders go through the paces at an airport disaster drill. Tulsa area agencies took part in today's drill. Airport spokeswoman Alexis Higgins says such dress- rehearsals are important.

Under the scenario, a jetliner made a rough landing after hitting a flock of birds on final approach, leaving injured passengers on board.

EMSA's Chris Stevens says it was a great training exercise for his paramedics.

Nearly two dozen agencies took part in the drill.
