Nellis weapons load crews

Released by Team Nellis Public Affairs

2/19/2013 - Staff Sgt. Kevin Knight and Senior Airman Ian Carter, 757th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron weapons load crew members, load a MK-82 onto an A-10 Thunderbolt II Feb.15, 2013, at Nellis Air Force Base, Nev. Weapons loaders participate in quarterly load crew competitions to keep airmen sharp and to recognize superior performers. (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Matthew Lancaster) Hi-res

Note: Pictured is a Triple Ejector Rack (TER), loaded with three Mk. 82 inert training bombs (blue stripes). This loadout config has been not used on flying "Hogs" for years. But it was common during operation Desert Storm. Unfortunately, this photo release doesn't include a full picture of the aircraft. And so I can't identify the station.
