First of the deployed 127th Wing A-10Cs caught at D-M

Warthog News contributor James O'Rear from United States had the opportunity to catch some A-10Cs from the 107th Fighter Squadron, 127th Wing (Michigan ANG), Selfridge ANGB, January 11, 2010, on their first deployment to Davis-Monthan AFB, Arizona.

BTW: I just realized that at least these three and some other 107th Fighter Squadron Hogs still have no fin-flash or fin-cap flash. But at least some 107th FS Hogs are already wearing "Red Devils" markings on their engine nacelles. Please give me time to re-check all of that.
