74th Expeditionary Fighter Squadron A-10Cs caught at Lajes en-route Afghanistan (Part Two)

I'm now in contact with aviation photographer Juvenal Castro from Portugal. And I like to welcome Juvenal as my latest Warthog News contributor. After posting his video Video: A-10's landing at Lajes on my blog, he has provided me some of his A-10 stopover shots, taken at Lajes Field, Azores.

Let me present his latest pictures of A-10Cs from the 74th Expeditionary Fighter Squadron enroute Kandahar Airfield, Afghanistan, all photos taken on March 9, 2011:

Pictured in the foreground from left are:
A-10Cs 80-0277, 80-0272, 79-0179, 78-0600, 80-0223 (marked 23 WG)

Pictured in the background from left are:
A-10Cs 81-0990, 82-0660 (marked 76 FS), 78-0688

BTW: It's very helpful to have photographers at Lajes for documenting A-10 stopovers enroute or back from USCENTAF locations, just called the "Sandbox" by U.S. servicemembers. They provide uniqe pictures, never released by official U.S. Air Force news.
