EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE, FL. -- Airmen from the 33rd Aircraft Maintenance Squadron load an AIM-9X missile on to a F-35A’s external weapons pylon July 20, 2016, at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla.
This milestone was the first time an F-35A at Eglin AFB was loaded with internal and external weapons and will help develop weapon-loading procedures for the F-35 program.
The F-35 is capable of carrying weapons both internally and externally to adapt to mission needs.
