122ND FIGHTER WING MOVES  A10 TO AIR PARKThe 122nd Fighter Wing moved an A10 Thunderbolt II to Heritage Park; the air park at the front of the base. The 19,000 lbs aircraft was sling loaded and flown across the base and into place by a CH-47 Chinook from the Company B, 2nd Battalion, 238th Medium Lift Aviation Unit, Peoria, Illinois.

Ferguson Road between Bluffton Road and Airport Drive was closed during this time to allow for a 400 ft. radius that is required by safety requirements.

"We are pleased to add the A10 to Heritage Park and look forward to sharing it with our community in the future."
