Big Mama of "Flying Tigers" "Hogs" disclosed at Moody

By Joachim Jacob, Warthog News Editor

Well-known to the entire A-10 Thunderbolt II ("Warthog") community, including thousands of civilian aircraft enthusiasts all around the world, are the shark-mouthed "Hogs" of the 23rd Fighter Group "Flying Tigers", currently assigned to the 74th and 75th Fighter Squadrons. Some days ago, 23rd Wing Public Affairs, Moody AFB, Georgia, released the following picture:

In Rambo-style, Mark Kirsch pulls Big Mama outside a "secret hangar" because the aircraft's engines are tired and out of order now. In contrast to the A-10, a huge 5"/54 caliber Mark 45 gun (127 mm) is installed but stealthy hidden by the big nose.

Note: Have fun!
