75th Expeditionary Fighter Squadron A-10Cs flying over Afghanistan

Just found that on the Flickr site of DVIDSHUB (Defense Video & Imagery Distribution System):

An A-10 Thunderbolt II from the 23rd Fighter Group, Moody Air Force Base, Ga., peels away after being refueled from a KC-135 Stratotanker, assigned to the 340th Expeditionary Air Refueling Squadron, while flying over Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom, Feb. 26, 2011.

Note: Visible loadout: Sniper XR targeting pod on station 2, GBU-38 JDAMs (in different colors) on stations 4, 5, 7 and 8, SUU-25 Flare Dispenser on station 9, LAU-131 Rocket Pod on station 10. Please note the green replacement part on the bow's right side.

Here's the entire overwhelming "A-10C photo shooting", published by DVIDS:

Note: Hi-res links will be posted soon.


  1. Typical 23rd. Can't keep the Jet down for an extra day and paint the new FWD NLG door.

  2. The "green" part is the nose landing gear door...we had a few return from Afghanistan with new nose doors.
