October 1975 saw delivery of the first USAF A-10a and deployment in March 1976. Built specifically for close ground support the pilot is protected by titanium armor while being covered by a bubble canopy giving a commanding view. The Warthog has everything needed to survive, dual engines; self-sealing fuel cells; redundant flight control systems protected by titanium armor; a 30 mm seven-barrel Gatling gun; a wide array of bombs and missiles. This plane packs a heavy punch and can stay on scene a long time to deliver its payload.
A-10C 80-0275 was taken on charge in 1981 as an A-10A, converted to an OA-10A in 1987 and an A-10C in 2008. 80-0275 was assigned to the US Air Force A-10C Thunderbolt II Demonstration Team in May 2019 and spent August and September being repainted at Davis-Monthan AFB. The new paint scheme resembles a WWII-era P-51 Mustang and will be piloted by Major Cody “ShIV” Wilton, the Demo Team Commander. The team has received an FAA CAT II designation allowing the A-10C to fly within 1,000 feet from the crowd.
