It seems like A-10Cs from the 355th Fighter Wing, Davis-Monthan AFB, Arizona, are now on their way to Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan, to replace the A-10C ANG "Rainbow Team".
Already on Monday this week, one of my personal contacts told me via e-mail: Twelve A-10s should be departing from Davis-Monthan this Wednesday enroute to the Gulf.
Yesterday, Warthog News contributor Jared Soergel wrote on my Warthog News Facebook page: New Hawg rotation is in play, tankers dragging from Davis-Monthan: GOLD 81 (84-0185) with TREND 21 (x4) GOLD 91 (86-0038) with TREND 41 (x6) GOLD 01 (84-0187) with TREND 51 (x6) ... Appears the GOLDs went to KPSM and the TRENDs to KCEF. Making the hop across the pond tomorrow. Only a few tails logged: 78-0605, 80-0211, 81-0974, 82-0648.
Comment: So I hope, I will get some stopover shots taken at Lajes Field, Azores.
