Hello, fans and friends, and welcome to the June 2020 edition of Davis-Monthan AFB Desert Lightning News! The citizens of Tucson got a very special treat in mid-May, as A-10 Warthogs and F-16s took to the skies in recognition of front-line workers who are serving in the community’s battle against COVID-19. The A-10 Demonstration Team flew alongside another A-10 Thunderbolt II from the 355th Wing, joined by two F-16 Fighting Falcons from the Arizona Air National Guard.
