Safe and secure

A three-man load crew with the 35th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron secure a Joint Direct Attack Munition GBU-38 to a BRU-57A bomb rack during the 2nd quarter load competition at Misawa Air Base, Japan, Aug. 11, 2017. A JDAM enables employment of accurate air-to-surface weapons against high priority fixed and relocatable targets from the F-16 Fighting Falcon. The purpose of a load crew competition is to recognize superior performers and keep weapons loaders’ skills sharp and ready for real world situations. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Melanie A.
