Davis-Monthan AFB Open House

First delivered to D-M in Oct. 1975, the A-10 is a common sight above Tucson. It's easy to identify – just look for the twin turbofans on the rear fuselage. Nicknamed 'Warthog' for its appearance, the A-10 has been used heavily in Iraq and Afghanistan. Flying at low speed and altitude, it can identify and take out targets on the ground with fierce accuracy. Manufacturer: Fairchild Republic Co.; Number of crew: One pilot; Maximum speed: 420 mph; Range: 695 nautical miles; Ceiling: 45,000 feet
