Community Leaders Fly High

Leadership Lauderdale 2009 graduates visited the friendly skies with the 186th Air Refueling Wing Wednesday.

They first toured the Meridian air base, then took a flight over Panama City, Fla., to see the KC 135 tanker refuel F-15 aircraft.

"We all took turns laying flat on our backs. The refueling took 2-3 minutes per plane, so we all got to take a turn. So it was pretty exciting," said Leigh Barber.

leadership Lauderdale is a 9-month course offered by the East Mississippi Business Development Corporation that teaches interested citizens about themselves and their communities.
