75th EFS photo update

By Joachim Jacob

Today, from my newest European spotter friend João Toste (Portugal) I got the kind permission to post his following outstanding shot, published for first time just some hours ago on Azoresairphotos.com:

Over the weekend, from João I already got some more of his related shots as hi-res versions for private use only. But I can tell you: Thanks to those pics, all of the twelve originally deployed 75th EFS A-10s are identified now also by their 74th and 75th Fighter Squadrons assignments. That's very helpful for me, especially related to my intention to document all A-10 Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom combat deployments.
