Big Bomb Designer Dies: Albert L. Weimorts, a civilian engineer with the Air Force Research Lab’s Munitions Directorate, Eglin AFB, Fla., died of brain cancer on Dec. 21 in Fort Walton Beach, Fla. He was 67. AFRL officials credit Weimorts, who retired from the Air Force in 2003, with two highly notable achievements, development of the 5,000-pound GBU-28 bunker buster—deployed in just 28 days for Gulf War I—and the 21,500 Massive Ordnance Air Blast munition, known as the “mother of all bombs.”
