We salute the all-women Air Force team that crushed a weapons loading competition dressed as Rosie the Riveter
An all-women team of airmen crushed an aircraft ground crew contest at Aviano Air Base on Tuesday, and they did it in Greatest Generation style.
The "Bouncing Bettys," the first all-female team to compete in Aviano's Rapid Aircraft Generation and Employment (RAGE) competition, rocked navy blue coveralls and red polka dot bandanas in an ode to the legendary Rosie the Riveter.
"The team members wanted to represent the women that paved the way and were here before them during World War I and II, The Woman Ordnance workers," wrote Airman 1st Class Ericka Woolever, a photographer with the 31st Fighter Wing who documented the competition.
The Air Force is currently investigating an August incident that saw rockets outfitted with white phosphorus warheads spill out of a military vehicle onto a Tucson roadway, Task & Purpose has learned.
