Unique shot of 188th Fighter Wing's Boss Bird taken at D-M during Operation Snowbird

Released by 355th Fighter Wing Public Affairs as part of their news article It's ORI "go time"

Original photo caption: An A-10 prepares to land on the flightline after completing its mission at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Ariz. Feb., 14. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Michael Washburn) Hi-res

Note: Pictured is A-10C 80-0188, marked 188 FW as 188th Fighter Wing's Boss Bird or Wing King, from the 184th Fighter Squadron, 188th Fighter Wing (Arkansas Air National Guard), Fort Smith. This "Hog" was part of a 188th FW aircraft package which participated in Operation Snowbird at D-M in preparation of the "Flying Razorback's" upcoming Afghanistan deployment this summer. And from my viewpoint: This shot is unique due to the industrial area in the background. Anybody who can/will tell me some more about this "smoking" site?

  1. I think Tucson Electric Power has a coal-washing facility located between DM and the I-10?
