Building bombs, camraderie

Staff Sgt. Shane Thielmann, 48th Munitions Squadron conventional maintenance crew chief, explains to Captains Nicholas Eby and Jamie McDowall, 492nd Fighter Squadron aircrew, how to properly fit the forward adapter onto a Guided Bomb Unit-24 at Royal Air Force Lakenheath, England, May 4, 2015. The bomb-build immersion event gave aircrew participants a cradle-to-grave understanding of the weapons they utilize, while promoting synergy between the operations and maintenance groups.
