The first A-10C Thunderbolt II attack jet towed under the new sunshades installed at the Maryland Air National Guard, 175th Wing at Warfield Air National Guard Base in Baltimore, Md., April 21, 2011. The sunshades are design to help keep maintenance costs down. The shades will also protect the aircraft from rain, hail, snow and UV rays that can deteriorate gaskets, rubber seals, paint and other items costing more to maintain aircraft.
