Former 81st Fighter Squadron A-10s finally departed Lajes enroute to CONUS

Updated November 16, 2009

According to Warthog News contributor André Inácio from Portugal, all three ex 81st Fighter Squadron A-10s enroute to CONUS departed Lajes Field, Azores, November 15, 2009 (after three weeks). Via e-mail, he told me: The cause was A-10 81-0984 had some problems in engine. But I don't have sure about this.

Unfortunately, André don't have any pictures of their departure.

Three unmarked A-10s from the 81st Fighter Squadron, 52nd Fighter Wing, left Spangdahlem AB, Germany, for Continental United States (CONUS) October 24, 2009. Serial numbers are: 81-0952, 81-0978, and 81-0984.

Posted on November 16, 2009 on the Dutch Scramble Message Board: The three ex-81FS A-10s that arrived at Lajes at the end of last month, finally departed to Pease ANGB this afternoon as Retro 01-03. The supporting KC-10 Gold 27 went to KWRI.
