127th Wing Photos

Selfridge Research

130829-Z-VA676-096 -- Staff Sgt. Scott Dykstra, a crew chief with the 127th Wing, services an A-10 Thunderbolt II with liquid oxygen, or LOX, during routine operations at Selfridge Air National Guard Base, Mich., Aug. 29, 2013. Though the use of LOX is now routine at Selfridge and across the Air Force, it wasn’t until a formation of early “pursuit” planes took off from Selfridge in 1931 that LOX came into general use for military aircraft.
