A-10 demonstration team to perform during 2018 airshow season

355 Fighter Wing Public Affairs

The U.S. Air Force A-10 demonstration team will once again display the capabilities of the Thunderbolt II at approximately 14 shows throughout the 2018 airshow season.

The A-10 demonstration team last flew in 2011. The A-10 flew exclusively with the Air Force Heritage Flight program in 2012 and 2017.

Specifically designed for close-air support, the Thunderbolt II’s combination of high and low speed maneuverability, long loiter time and accurate weapons delivery has proven an important asset in Air Force operations throughout history.

The single-ship aerial demonstration team is sponsored by Air Combat Command and assigned to Davis-Monthan Air Force Base. The team pilot is Capt. Cody Wilton.

The team’s schedule is currently being built. Airshow coordinators interested in booking the A-10 demonstration team should send requests to acc.a3ta@us.af.mil.

For more information, call the 355th FW Public Affairs office at 520-228-3407 or email 355wgpa@us.af.mil.
