'Lost Hog' event moved

Salina Journal

Tuesday´s rain forced a change in location for tonight´s "Lost Hogs" Memorial Ceremony to honor pilots of the A-10 Thunderbolt II who died in combat or otherwise. Also, the event is no longer open to the public.

It´s part of Hawgsmoke, a gathering and competition of A-10 pilots this week.

The "Lost Hogs" ceremony was moved to the Salina Municipal Airport flight line or a hangar, which will prevent it from being a public event, said Maj. David Kurle of the 442nd Fighter Wing, Whiteman Air Force Base, Missouri, which is hosting the Hawgsmoke event.

Lost Hogs originally was planned for a public area near the Kansas Regional Training Center, but "it´s just a sea of mud out there," Kurle said.
