Two more Air Force units have failed nuclear surety inspections. The 341st Missile Wing and 16th Munitions Squadron, both at Malmstrom Air Force Base, Mont., received "unsatisfactory" grades from inspectors Feb. 9.

Both the wing and the squadron can still handle nuclear weapons, said John Thomas and Ron Fry, spokesmen for Global Strike Command and Air Force Materiel Command, respectively.

Global Strike Command oversees the wing, and AFMC oversees the squadron.

Inspectors from each respective command will return to the units in three months, the spokesmen said.
