307th MXS steps up

U.S. Air Force Master Sgt. Richard Taliaferro, 307th Maintenance Squadron armament systems mechanic, sweats it out as he adjusts the torque on an MAU-9 Bomb Rack on a Conventional Rotary Launcher at Barksdale Air Force Base, La., Nov. 13, 2017. The 307th MXS is scheduled to complete conversions on the launchers for the entire Air Force B-52 inventory. Converting the bomb racks from MAU-7’s to MAU-9’s, placing them on the launchers and ensuring reliability is a significant investment in time and personnel. Each launcher conversion takes about 300 personnel hours to complete. (U.S. Air Force photo by Master Sgt. Ted Daigle/released)
