WHITEMAN AIR FORCE BASE, Mo. --
The Load Crew of the Quarter was established to foster competition and esprit de corps throughout the weapons community. During the load, all crew members must be mindful of clearances between the weapon, aircraft, ladders, and personnel within the small confines of the weapons bay while trying to meet the time standard of the load. This quarter's competition added in the additional factor of another crew loading at the same time in the weapons bay beside them.
