Exclusive Photos: A-10 Enhanced Wing Assembly (EWA) Roll-Out Ceremony

By Joachim Jacob, Warthog News Editor

I'm very happy to share the following exclusive pictures with the A-10 Thunderbolt II "Warthog" community. All pictures were taken and provided exclusively to Warthog News by Randal Heller, who is involved in this program. Some days ago, Randal announced this event via e-mail to me.

In his latest e-mail, including the pictures, Randal told me:


Here are a couple of photos from the rollout ceremony today. I only got a few shots before my batteries died, but a coworker got a few shots and I hope to get those tomorrow.

The ceremony was short. Major General Busch (commander of the Ogden Air Logistic Center) spoke briefly, then an executive from Boeing spoke. Colonel John Cherrey, commander of the 355th Fighter Wing at Davis-Monthan AFB, spoke and thanked everyone for the hard work they put into the program. It was short and sweet, and the jet looked great. The ceremony took place in Hangar 1 at Hill AFB, UT.


Please note: Special thanks to Randal for sharing this exclusive info!
