    An unarmed AGM-86B Air-Launched Cruise Missile is loaded at Minot Air Force Base, N.D., in preparation for a Nuclear Weapons System Evaluation Program sortie. Crews recently conducted three such test flights, which helped loaders and aircrew determine how effective a weapon is. The launch was part of an end-to-end operational evaluation for the crew's ability to pull an ALCM from storage, load it aboard an aircraft, execute a simulated combat mission tasking and successfully deliver the weapon from the aircraft to its final target.
