Senior Airman Mitchell Dexter, 2nd Aircraft Maintenance Squadron crew chief, communicates with aircrew in the cockpit of a B-52H Stratofortress during a Minimum Interval Takeoff on Barksdale Air Force Base, La., Aug. 14, 2014. A MITO is executed to allow the B-52 to quickly respond and deliver precision munitions at a momentÕs notice. Starter cartridges, filled with gun powder, are used during this takeoff instead of the standard, compressed-air takeoff. (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt. Sean Martin)
