U.S. Air Force

On Thursday, crew members at the 33rd Fighter Wing loaded four GBU-12 munitions into an F-35A Lighting II aircraft for the first time, here at Eglin Air Force Base.

The guided munitions were loaded in preparation for pilots to launch them from the F-35A later in the day.
The weapons drop was originally scheduled for late spring of this year, but according to the 33rd Fighter Wing, innovation and persistence from its pilots and maintainers allowed for an earlier launch of the munitions.

The Pensacola Symphony is back in the Saenger Theatre this Saturday, March 5th at 7:30pm, for a performance titled "Sounds of Europe."  Pianist Roberto Plano will join the orchestra for a wide-ranging program of music by Smetana, de Falla, and Respighi.   Music Director Peter Rubardt and Dr. Hedi Salanki stopped by the studios to share some thoughts on the performance.

Hedi Salanki: I think it is pretty safe to say that your musical journey to Europe starts out with the most brilliant minor scale.
