Screenshot of the 127th Wing's Detroit Tigers Shout-Out at Kandahar

By Joachim Jacob

I took the following screenshot of a photo, published in the 127th Wing's base newspaper "Prevailing Wind" (October 2011 public online PDF issue). The quality is not so good, but until now this picture has been not released as hi-res JPG in their website's photo section.

Original "Prevailing Wind" photo caption: Deployed members of the 127th Wing give a shout out to the Detroit Tigers shortly after arriving at Kandahar Airfield in Afghanistan. This image is taken from a video produced by the Public Affairs Office of the 451st Air Expeditionary Wing. The video, and a similar one featuring a shout out to the Detroit Lions, were posted on 127th Wing's Facebook page and quickly became a local Facebook sensation, being forwarded, shared and liked by hundreds of supporters of the Michigan Air National Guard and of the two sports teams. The Tigers video was shown by the Detroit Tigers on the main scoreboard at Comerica Park during Game 5 of the American League Championship Series — a win by the Tigers.

Please note: I've already shared both video clips on the Warthog News fan page on Facebook on October 12. Pictured is A-10C 80-0262 from the 107th Fighter Squadron.
