A-10s complete second USPACOM Air Contingent mission
A U.S. Air Force A-10C Thunderbolt II sits the flight line at Clark Air Base, Philippines after flying a maritime domain awareness mission April 21, 2016. The A-10C has a proven record operating out of short and varying airstrips, provide a flexible range of capabilities, and have a mission profile consistent with the air and maritime domain awareness operations the Air Contingent is conducting out of the air base. The A-10 is capable of loitering close to the surface for extended periods to allow for excellent visibility over land and sea domains. (U.S. Air Force photo by Capt. Susan Harrington)
