Photo Gallery | PHOTOS | Robins AFB, Macon fire departments train together

Flames engulfed an aircraft at Robins Air Force base this afternoon, but no need to worry: it was all a drill.

More than two dozen firefighters from Macon-Bibb County Fire Department trained with firefighters from Robins to put out a burning plane.

The iron structure in the shape of an aircraft was set on fire before crews were allowed into the training area to put out the blaze.

The firefighters put out the fire from the outside and then inside the structure.

It's an opportunity for both departments to work together in a simulation before tackling the real thing.
