ABILENE, Texas -

Dyess Air Force base held a media day Friday, giving local media the chance to get an inside look at what the Airmen do on a daily basis.

K-Texas got the opportunity to tour the base and see where the Airmen eat, sleep and do their job.

The Airmen did exercises to simulate what it's like in various real-life situations.

KTXS toured different aircraft, as well as went up for a ride in a C-130.

This was the first media day Dyess has held in three years.
