USAF released archived A-10 OEF shot from late 2008

As part of the "Oct. 12 airpower summary: A-10s make strafing runs on enemy position", this awesome news photo was released on USAF's public main website October 13, 2009:

An A-10 Thunderbolt II deploys flairs over Afghanistan November 12, 2008. A-10s provide close-air support to ground troops in Afghanistan and Iraq. The A-10's excellent maneuverability at low air speeds and altitude and its highly accurate weapons delivery make it an ideal aircraft for supporting coalition operations.

Note: It's A-10 79-0179 from the 74th Fighter Squadron and was deployed with the original aircraft package from Moody AFB, Georgia.
