Fast and efficient weapons loaders
From left, Staff Sgt. Eddie Lipscomb, Senior Airman Tyler Metcalf and Airman 1st Class Michael Ridgeway, 33rd Aircraft Maintenance Squadron weapons load crew members, position a Joint Direct Attack Munition GBU-31 in front of an F-35A Lightning II Dec. 1, at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla. Load crews from the 33rd Fighter Wing perform a Minimum Required Proficiency Load every month to ensure their ability and knowledge of the munitions and their loading ability is spot on. The ability to load weapons onto an aircraft quickly and efficiently enables pilots in training to fly the sorties they need to graduate. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Peter Thompson)
