Conspiracy theorists are up in arms about the latest “Jade Helm” exercise in Texas.

Yesterday, about two hundred military personnel wearing their operational camo milled inside a commandeered hangar at Valley International, setting up tan hospital tents and seeing to it everything is prepared.

“The interesting point is this is the largest disaster exercise Texas has ever done,” said Maj. Wayne Hill with the Texas Air National Guard. “Another significant piece of this is we’ve never contracted for commercial aircraft to fly our general population, non-medical people, out of the Valley.”

In addition to twin military C-130 transport planes, the drill will utilize two Boeing 737s and an MD-80 to transport civilians, Hill said.

Those flights will carry 400 volunteers to simulate an evacuation of the Valley as a Category 5 hurricane looms off the coast in the Gulf of Mexico. Another 64 volunteers will act the roles of medical transports, people who may be in wheelchairs or bed-bound or on IVs.

The two military cargo planes, the C-130s, will land in Harlingen on Wednesday morning. Then a hectic flight schedule begins at noon, with planes arriving and departing on the half-hour mark until the last plane departs Harlingen for Austin at 4 p.m.
