Shooters launch first Rapid Ready Weasel exercise
A pair of boots and hearing-protective earphones lie on the ground after being set aside by an Airman prior to climbing into the intake of an F-16CM Fighting Falcon at Shaw Air Force Base, South Carolina, Nov. 16, 2017. The maintainer removed his shoes to prevent damage and foreign object debris from entering the intake while he was inspecting it. After the aircraft landed, maintenance Airmen worked together to prepare the jets for another round of flights. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Destinee Sweeney)
