Staff Sgt. Nicholas Aitchison and Airman 1st Class Andrew Kodis, both weapons load crew members assigned to the 37th Aircraft Maintenance Unit, retrieve a AGM-158A Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile to be installed into a B-1 bomber for a load competition at Ellsworth Air Force Base, S.D., March 17, 2017. The competition tests the Airmen's knowledge and skills of properly and safely loading bombs by pushing them to the limit of their abilities. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman Nicolas Z. Erwin)
