By arrival for stopover at Lajes Field, Azores, on September 8, 2008, A-10C 79-0192 from the 74th Fighter Squadron made an emergency landing due to some engine problems. The aircraft, currently deployed with the 75th Expeditionary Fighter Squadron for Operation Enduring Freedom to the 455th Air Expeditionary Wing at Bagram AB, Afghanistan, is towed to the ramp with the fire services just behind.

BTW: I'm still in the process to make stronger personal contacts to Lajes photographers. That would be very helpful, especially in case of my intention to document all A-10 OEF and OIF combat deployments. And as well known, photo proofs are very important for the history books.
