DOVER, Del.- This week the Dover Air Force Base hosted members of the local media for a tour of the facility and to take part in a training flight.
WBOC Kent County Bureau Director Mike Chesney went along for the ride in a C-17 Globemaster III. The trip took him and the other participants from Dover up to Maine. There, the C-17 met up with a tanker plane for refueling.
DAFB has 13 C-17s and 6 C-5Ms. They combine to provide almost 20 percent of the entire lift capability for the Air Force.

A new addition could be coming to the Salisbury City Park. The Eastern Shore International Mountain Biking Association is seeking permission from the city to put in mountain bike trails at the park. WBOC's Leanne Matlach has more on the proposed plan that could get more people moving in Salisbury.More
