    The original finding aid described this photograph as: [Complete] Scene Caption: Teams from Raytheon Missile Systems, Lockheed Martin and Langley Air Force Base, Virginia, convened at Luke Air Force Base, Arizona, to test the compatibility of the Enhanced Guided Bomb Unit-27 with the F-16 Fighting Falcon aircraft. The tests include the examination of loading and assembly procedures of the Raytheon bomb and the writing and rewriting of technical orders. The $110,000 bomb weighs 2,000 pounds and gives the Air Force an all-weather precision strike capability by linking the existing laser guidance system with the Inertial Navigation and Global Positioning Systems and will use the MARK-84 or the BLU 109 bomb body. Pictured here, an EGBU-27 hangs beneath the wing of an F-16 after being loaded by weapons load crew members from Luke Air Force Base, Arizona.
