5/4/2011 - OSAN AIR BASE, Republic of Korea -- Airmen with the 51st Munitions Squadron and the 25th Aircraft Maintenance Unit recently worked together at building and loading some munitions onto an A-10 here. 51st MUNS built a dozen Mark-82, 500-pound, free-fall, general-purpose bombs in order to hone and practice their skills. The Airmen then delivered the munitions to the Draggins Lair where the 25th AMU Airmen loaded an A-10.
