Loader up

SOUTHWEST ASIA -- Senior Airman Jason Wiley installs a flexible drive shaft on an ammunition loader at a forward-deployed location. It is used to load 20 mm ammunition into F-15 Eagle and F-16 Fighting Falcon internal gun systems and can hold enough ammunition for about three aircraft. Environmental conditions in the desert require Airmen from the armament flight to inspect the loading system every 45 days. Airman Wiley is deployed from the 122nd Fighter Wing at Fort Wayne Air National Guard Base, Ind. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Colleen Bushnell)
