Anyone for the other MD A10 ?
The MD and FT A-10's are flying with the 66WPS (WA) A-10's. They are parked on the V-shaped platform, South-East of the runway.

Last Friday morning (March 23) a Maryland MD A-10, was flying a local mission with two WA A-10's and one FT A-10.
Unfortunately they use the "Speedway" landing, while I was standing on Cheyenne. Anyone for the id's

Seen here on the above days were the following awesome 230 aircraft! The aircraft are listed clockwise starting on the left end of the platform. Most aircraft were read of by our group on the 14th between 06:45 and 08:30. Some aircraft were (partially) added from the list posted earlier in this topic. Some fiscal years were looked up.

Additions and corrections are most welcome. A few commanders aircraft remain unknown so I would be pleased if anyone can add these!

Arie,

The message clearly states: most serials were read by the group, some were added from earlier logs.

the Bu#s were all there. some were even with the top of MARINES and some were even with the bottom, making those easier to see. also they varied in color from almost black to almost the same color as the plane!
