47th Fighter Squadron A-10Cs involved in upcoming Afghanistan combat deployment

There are breaking pictures on the 442nd Fighter Wing public website:

According to the latest 442nd Fighter Wing Slideshow, some A-10Cs from the 47th Fighter Squadron, Barksdale AFB, Louisiana, are on their way to deploy to Afghanistan.

They will be part of an "Total Force" A-10C Thunderbolt II combat deployment to the 451st Air Expeditionary Wing at Kandahar Airfield, Afghanistan, in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.

They left Barksdale AFB September 21, 2010, for Selfridge Air National Guard Base, Michigan, to meet the A-10C aircraft package scheduled for deployment.

At the moment, some related pictures are uploaded now.
