Big booms at DAFB Thursday
By Peter MacArthur

If you're in the vicinity of Dover Air Force base Thursday and hear explosions and other loud noises, know it's only a drill.

Members of the 436th Civil Engineer Squadron's Explosive Ordnance Disposal Flight and Delaware State Police are doing some training between 8am and 4 pm.

Officials say if it's overcast, the noise tends to travel farther.
