Wings Over Whiteman 2009

Senior Airman Jennifer Laspino manuevers a jammer into position to pick up a 500-pound inert bomb from a trailer to load on an A-10 Thunderbolt II attack aircraft during the Wings Over Whiteman air show and open house June 6, 2009, at Whiteman Air Force Base, Mo. Airman Laspino, Tech. Sgt. Ricky Schweim and Senior Airman Shane Dunn demonstrated their bomb-loading procedures to members of the public during the event. All three are bomb loaders with the 442nd Aircraft Maintenance Squadron, part of the 442nd Fighter Wing, which is an Air Force Reserve unit based at Whiteman. The wing, along with the 509th Bomb Wing, hosted Whiteman's first open house since 2006 and drew an estimated crowd of 30,000 people. (U.S. Air Force photo/Maj. David Kurle)
