Power up: 91st MMXS Airmen maintain launch facility
A 91st Missile Maintenance Squadron electromechanical team member follows entry procedures at a nuclear launch facility near Minot Air Force Base, North Dakota, March 19, 2019. Six person teams, at a minimum, perform this intricate operation more than 50 times per year. The launch facility batteries weigh 1,450 pounds each and are craned 25 feet below ground. Battery maintenance is a vital step in keeping the Minuteman III’s tertiary power source functioning as America’s 24/7 deterrent force. (U.S. Air Force photos by Senior Airman Ashley Boster)
