Two post-World War II bombs were uncovered during construction on a runway at the NASA Wallops Flight Facility.
The Salisbury Daily Times reports that they were still intact.
Dover Air Force Base sent an ordnance disposal team who exploded the bombs last night.
Keith Kohler, a spokesman for the flight facility, said that the north end of the runway had been used by the Navy during the 1940’s and early 1950’s.
The paper reports that the new runway will be used for unmanned aerial vehicles.
