. Bomb Building Airmen: AMMO flight sustains AF lethality during readiness exercise
It’s day six of a basewide readiness exercise. Airmen are dressed in an intricate but lightweight suit, consisting of a protective gas mask, gloves and over boots, specifically made to prevent deadly agents from reaching the skin and respiratory system. They walk cautiously across a large, concrete platform to the assembly conveyer pad. To the left of the pad, a team of Airmen are already building up laser-guided aerial bombs.

These Airmen are literally surrounded by tons of explosives, and building more of them while donned head-to-toe in comfortless protective gear.
