Ten years ago: A-10s participated in Operation Allied Force

By Joachim Jacob

It's the 10th anniversary of Operation Allied Force, which was a bombing campaign by NATO in the former Yugoslavia as a response to Slobodan Milosevic's military action in Kosovo. The Kosovo Air Campaign began on March 24, 1999, and ended on June 10, 1999. For first-hand info about related A-10 deployments and A-10 combat missions please check out this very informative online-book: A-10s over Kosovo - The Victory of Airpower over a Fielded Army as Told by the Airmen Who Fought in Operation Allied Force; edited by Christopher E. Haave, Colonel, USAF, and Phil M. Haun, Lieutenant Colonel, USAF; Air University Press, Maxwell Air Force Base, Alabama, December 2003
