Las Vegas nightlife meets the "Hog"

By Joachim Jacob, Warthog News Editor

On Nellis Air Force Base's public website 99th Air Base Wing Public Affairs released the following picture:

An A-10 Thunderbolt takes off over the Las Vegas Skyline during Green Flag-West Oct. 30, 2012, at Nellis Air Force Base, Nev. Green Flag-West provides a realistic close-air support training environment for Airmen and soldiers preparing to deploy in support of combat operations.

Note: This incredible shot is part of a news story Green Flag-West provides joint training experience. But because there's no A-10C fighter squadron mentioned in the story it seems the pictured "Hog" belongs either to the 66th Weapons Squadron (WPS) or to the 422nd Test and Evaluation Squadron (TES), both located at Nellis. If I should be wrong, please drop me a line.
