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.
Some things are just so good, they bring tears to your eyes. Take, for example, the sight of fresh snow on a clear winter day, or the soft fur of a friendly puppy, or, for many in and out of uniform, the distinctive BRRRTT sound of a 30mm GAU-8 Avenger rotary cannon spitting 3,900 rounds a minute of 100% organic fury from the steel-grey nose tip of an A-10 Warthog.

A man used a 5-foot narwhal tusk to confront the London Bridge terror suspect, according to an eyewitness in Fishmongers' Hall, a building at the north side of the bridge where the attack began.
On Friday afternoon, two victims were killed and three were injured by the suspect, who was wearing a fake explosive vest, law enforcement said. The suspect was shot and killed by police.
