188th Fighter Wing's first and lone female pilot

Released yesterday by 188th Fighter Wing Public Affairs:

Women's History Month - Capt. Kristin Bass prepares to exit an A-10C Thunderbolt II "Warthog" following her fini flight at the 188th Fighter Wing in Fort Smith, Arkansas, October 6, 2008. Bass flew both F-16 Fighting Falcons and A-10s for the 188th and was the unit's first and lone female pilot. The 188th will celebrate Women's History Month March 6, 2010, during UTA with guest speaker, State Command Sgt. Major Deborah Collins at 9:30 a.m. in the 188th headquarters auditorium.

Note: The aircraft is A-10 80-0166. But according to the original Armament Control Panel (still with "eyebrows"), in fact it's not an A-10C.
