In response to flaws exposed by an embarrassing nuclear weapon error last August, the Air Force will change the way bomber crews organize for their nuclear training mission, the top Air Force general said. Gen. Michael Moseley, the Air Force chief of staff, told reporters that B-52 crews assigned to training for the nuclear attack mission will do that exclusively for at least six months at a time, rather than switching regularly between training for nuclear and non-nuclear missions. Last August a B-52 was flown from Minot Air Force Base, N.D., to Barksdale Air Force Base, La., with the pilot and crew unaware they had nuclear arms aboard.
