94, 27 AMU Battle for 3rd Quarter Weapons Load Champions

By Staff Sgt. Carlin Leslie 633rd Air Base Wing Public Affairs

The 27th and 94th Aircraft Maintenance Units each provided a three-man team that competed for the “3rd Quarter Top Weapons Load Crew” title at Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Nov. 3, 2017.


During the competition, the teams were evaluated on their capability to accomplish a successful weapons load on a U.S. Air Force F-22 Raptor. Any infractions that were seen during the load were counted and deducted from their total time after they completed the competition.


“Weapons load competitions offer an opportunity for our weapons personnel to sharpen their skills against the best weapon loaders across the 1st Maintenance Group and possibly the Air Force, “ said U.S. Air Force Chief Master Sgt. Christopher Shaver, 1st Maintenance Group weapons loading manager. “All while showcasing their extraordinary and professional talents to the wings.”


After the evaluation team tallied up all of the points, the 27th AMU came out on top. There will be one more competition this year before the annual winner is determined.
