A-10s complete second USPACOM Air Contingent mission
A U.S. Air Force A-10C Thunderbolt II aircraft arrives at Clark Air Base, Philippines after conducting an air and maritime domain awareness mission April 21, 2016. The aircraft flew in the vicinity of Scarborough Shoal providing greater and more transparent air and maritime situational awareness to ensure safety for military and civilian activities in international waters and airspace. The A-10C has a mission profile consistent with the air and maritime domain awareness operations U.S. Pacific Command’s Air Contingent is conducting out of the air base, as it is capable of loitering close to the surface for extended periods to allow for excellent visibility over land and sea domains.
