Boom’s experience drives passion for instructing

Staff Sgt. Lane Nunier, left, 350th Air Refueling Squadron boom operator instructor, observes Airman 1st Class Patrick Napolitano, 350th ARS boom operator, as he completes a checklist prior to a refueling mission, July 12, 2017, over the Pacific ocean. As an instructor, Nunier observes and asks questions to new boom operators to gauge their level of understanding to ensure every new boom is qualified before they are able to operate on their own.
