First to Use the A-10C in Combat

An A-10C Thunderbolt jet taxis in on the flightline at Al Asad Air Base, Iraq, after a mission Oct. 27, 2007. The A-10Cs are assigned to the 104th Expeditionary Fighter Squadron, which is made up primarily of members of the Maryland Air National Guard. They are the first unit to use the A-10C in a combat zone. Its upgrades have made air power much more efficient and have streamlined the close air support mission. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt.
