KATC has received multiple calls and messages about a military plane flying in Lafayette.

There is a single C-17 conducting an exercise at the Lafayette Regional Airport, according to a spokesperson for the airport.

The exercise is called a Touch and Go. It's when a plane lands on the runway, then takes back off, makes a circle and then lands again.

This is done multiple times during the exercise.
