the fighters deploy to Afghanistan today. march 29, 2012.
the sad story is the 188th Fighter Wing (FW) Flying Razorbacks, are in danger of losing the A-10 Warthogs. the Air Force recommends a force structure change that would remove A-10s from the ramp in Fort Smith, Arkansas, and provide the 188th Fighter Wing with an unmanned aircraft mission. The aircraft would not be located in Fort Smith anymore 😦
these pictures were taken @ Fort Smith airshow, september 2011.
