Latest official picture of A-10C 79-0112 with visible ladder door art

442nd Fighter Wing Public Affairs just released another current picture of A-10C 79-0112, but this time with a full view of the aircraft's ladder door art:

Tech. Sgt. Kellie Askew, 442nd Aircraft Maintenance Squadron crew chief, reveals the name of the new wing commander on an A-10 Thunderbolt II, aircraft tail number 79-0112, during the wing change-of-command ceremony, Dec. 4, 2010. During the ceremony, Col. Eric Overturf took charge of the 442nd Fighter Wing. The wing is an Air Force Reserve unit at Whiteman Air Force Base, Mo. (U.S. Air Force photo by Tech. Sgt. Tom Talbert) Hi-res

Please note: The ladder door art's motto is: Never forget the Vet!! - including the common POW * MIA sign (for prisoners of war and also for people missing in action). The door art possibly includes a Harley Davidson motorcycle, the head of a falcon, and the POW * MIA symbol.
