Staff Sgt. Joseph Gamache and Senior Airman Mitchell Dexter, both 2nd Aircraft Maintenance Squadron crew chiefs, load a shotgun cartridge into a B-52H Stratofortress engine during a Minimal Interval Takeoff on Barksdale Air Force Base, La., Aug. 14, 2014. A MITO uses shotgun cartridges, filled with gun powder, to rapidly start all eight engines on a B-52H Stratofortress. This allows the B-52 to takeoff at a momentÕs notice if called upon to do so.
