Most people don't see museums and planes going hand in hand.  In fact, how can a massive fighter jet fit in your average exhibit?  But for the March Field Air Museum, that's exactly what they've done.  In addition to the 70 aircraft and the more than 30,000 artifacts in the vicinity, it's also taken on a new executive director.  KVCR's Natalya Estrada spoke with museum officials about what to explore at this historic site.

The agency that for years has been responsible for guiding the development of vacant land around March Air Reserve Base has served its purpose and needs to be dissolved, according to a proposal approved by the Riverside County Board of Supervisors.  KVCR's Ken Vincent has details.

The decision by the Riverside County Board of Supervisors to wind down the March Joint Powers Authority was unanimous Tuesday.

The U.S. Air Force has decided not to consider March Air Reserve Base in Moreno Valley as a finalist to host a new military air tanker program.  KVCR's Ken Vincent report the Air Force snub of March does not sit well with one Inland Empire Member of Congress.
