Did you get stuck behind a plane on the highway in Connecticut? Here's why.

Connecticut State Police troopers escorted a military aircraft across Connecticut roads Friday, attracting an audience along the way.

Police posted photos of the plane, a U.S. Air Force C-130 transport aircraft, on its Facebook page Saturday.

It was loaded onto a tractor trailer in CT, where troopers escorted the heavy cargo to the Rhode Island border. The plane is headed to New Hampshire, according to the State Police Facebook post.

"Many people were surprised to see this plane traveling along the interstate and through Bethel, Thomaston and other towns," police wrote in the post.

They did not specify where exactly the aircraft was headed, or where it was coming from.

  1. The route scout didn't do his/her homework very well. That intersection would have been stressful tight for my fifth wheel dually and 3-car 53' hauler trailer. I avoid routes like this for that exact matter.
