A-10s in action over Afghanistan


This video, posted today by Youtube account Global Motion, gives a good look at A-10s refueling over Afghanistan earlier this month, shot from the perspective of a KC-135R Stratotanker from the 340th Expeditionary Air Refueling Squadron. The A-10s are a part of the 74th Expeditionary Fighter Squadron, deployed from Moody Air Force Base, Ga.

The A-10s have been the focus of political fighting, starting with the planned retirement of possibly the whole fleet. That proposal has prompted Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., to place a hold on the nomination of Deborah Lee James to be the next Air Force secretary.

Despite all of the fighting in Washington, the Warthogs are still getting work done.
