MQ-1, MQ-9 Millennials making a difference on the battlefield

Senior Airman Than, 42nd Attack Squadron MQ-9 sensor operator flies a simulated training mission Nov. 28, 2016, at Creech Air Force Base, Nev. The position of sensor operator is one of two jobs in the Air Force where enlisted Airmen can employ munitions from an aircraft, the other being aerial gunner. This gives young enlistees an opportunity to daily affect the battlefield by providing reconnaissance and persistent attack by guiding weapons to their targets.
