    Senior Airman Dominic Hobbs, a 3rd Aircraft Maintenance Squadron weapons load crew member, works on a key part needed to equip the Air Intercept Missile-9X to an F-22 Raptor March 1. Each part originally took a week to complete, but by consolidating the 525th Aircraft Maintenance Unit, 90th Aircraft Maintenance Unit, and 3rd Munitions Squadron’s Armament flight into one temporary location, they have been able to reduce that time to 72 hours and complete enough rails ahead of schedule to allow for the first F-22 Raptor sortie with an AIM-9X to be flown March 1.
