A-10 Surge Operations

Seen from the air traffic control tower on the opposite side of the air field, three A-10 Thunderbolt II aircraft taxi out of the parking ramp area toward the active runway at Selfridge Air National Guard Base, Mich., Aug. 10, 2012. An orange glow can be seen under the structures at left, where Airmen were using work lights in an early morning rain to prepare for the day’s flying missions. Airmen from the 107th Fighter Squadron, who fly the aircraft, and the 127th Maintenance Group, who maintain the aircraft, participated in a surge operation, launching and recovering a higher-than-usual number of aircraft, as part of a series of readiness training exercises taking place at the base in August.
