Historic Delta plane to be displayed at BWI Six decades ago, Delta Airlines sent its first DC-3 passenger plane into the sky. Today, the original plane - dubbed the "Ship 41" - will land at Baltimore-Washington International Airport, one of 60 stops on its nationwide tour to honor Delta's 75th year in business. After its landing at 10 a.m., the twin-engine plane will remain parked at Gate C-10, under the upper-level observation deck. It will remain on display until the end of the week.

Voters of Anne Arundel County face a tough choice in the county executive's race -- two candidates who are both highly qualified for the job. The difference is largely one of nuance and style -- the technocrat vs. the populist.Republican Robert Neall is unquestionably competent. His experience in the legislature and as drug czar for Governor Schaefer makes him one of Annapolis' power elite, which could work to Arundel's advantage. Neall's skill on the Appropriations Committee proved his fiscal prowess; he is a consummate number-cruncher who has presented a credible fiscal platform.

The Anne Arundel County Board of Education approved plans Wednesday to construct a new Severna Park High School, a $99 million replacement building that would be 38,000 square feet larger than the current facility and would take less than four years to complete. School officials say the proposal mirrors one from Superintendent Kevin Maxwell and a planning committee of school and community members. The board requested $3.58 million for the coming fiscal year to design the school, officials said.

- The Arundel volleyball team had seen this story before. Unfortunately for them, it again doesn't have a happy ending. Sherwood defeated Arundel 27-25, 25-14,25-13 to win in the Class 4A state volleyball championship at the University of Maryland's Ritchie Coliseum. Sherwood's Alex Holston, who will play volleyball at Florida next year, has been the major reason the Wildcats have been eliminated from the state tournament the past three years. Sherwood defeated Arundel in the semifinals in 2010, and the state championship last season.
