Davis Monthan, June 1988. A 4-hour AMARC-trip always started with a ride down the operational flightlines of DM.

Four 81st F.S. A-10C's in the overhead pattern followed by a gear up, low approach. Soon this will be history, when the last Hogs will be withdrawn from Europe to be retired together with 102 other USAF A-10's (1/3rd off the fleet) :cry:

In my live I got just one day to photograph the mighty A-10. Thanks GRAS for that!
Sadly they will leave Europe tomorrow.

Strange feeling, expecting not to see them anymore. One of the first aircraft types I remember seeing 30 years ago. Luckily I visited Spang a few times last year and got to see them at the GRAS spotter event.

Now here some older ones :

1. Twenthe airshow 1987.
Image

2. Exercise CK-01 in Bulgaria 2001
Image

3. 81FS commander during the same exercise
Image

4. And a nice line-up during CK-02 at St.Dizier in France.

They surely will be missed ... :@(: :@(: :@(:
