Hawgsmoke 2010 Aircraft List

Updated November 1, 2010

So far, from official and private shots I verified a lot of Hogs which participated.

On October 28, 2010, Warthog News contributor Roel Reijne from The Netherlands sent me a very helpful e-mail with some more serial numbers. "Here the tail numbers we saw during arrival-day and competition-day during hawgsmoke", he wrote. And all of these numbers were noted (or spotted) by Arno Kok, also from The Netherlands.

In this first update, please just let me add Arno's very important eyewitness info to my own photo interpretations. In a second update I will made some additions and corrections.

Active units:

355th Fighter Wing (ACC), Davis-Monthan AFB, Arizona (DM)

Arno Kok:
A-10C 78-0652, marked 355 FS/CC (white)
A-10C 78-0706, marked 354 FS/CC (blue)
A-10C 79-0168 (black)
A-10C 80-0162 (-)
A-10C 80-0210 (-)
A-10C 82-0648 (blue), 354th FS

(= probably six jets)

(probably four jets)

Team Nellis (ACC)

A-10C 80-0229, marked 66 WPS as the 66th Weapons Squadron commander's jet

Arno Kok:
A-10C 79-0204 WA (yellow/black), 66th WS
A-10C 80-0229 66 WPS A-10C WA yellow/black 66th WS Nellis, NV

(probably only two jets)

Reserve units:

47th Fighter Squadron, 917th Wing (AFRC), Barksdale AFB, Arizona (BD)

A-10C 79-0144

(probably four jets)

Due to a system malfunction with one of the 47th FS jets, and no time in the schedule to get a substitute in the air, the 47th FS team went into the competition with only three jets.

Maybe A-10C 79-0120, marked ANG/AFRC Test Center, was sent by another unit.
