Definately exciting news!

It's official!

This was posted on the International Council of Air Shows facebook page:
A-10 DEMONSTRATION TEAM TO PERFORM IN 2018 AIR SHOW SEASON

The United States Air Force A-10 demonstration team will once again display the capabilities of the Thunderbolt II at approximately 14 shows throughout the 2018 air show season.

The A-10 demonstration team last flew in 2011. Since then, when it has participated in air shows, the A-10 has been either a static display aircraft or flown exclusively with the Air Force Heritage Flight program (in 2012 and 2017). In 2018, the Warthog will fly a full aerobatic demonstration and also perform in Heritage Flight demonstrations.

Specifically designed for close air support, the A-10’s combination of high and low speed maneuverability has made it a popular air show demonstration aircraft for many years. Beginning next year, the A-10 demo team – based at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Arizona – will be flown by Captain Cody Wilton.

The team’s schedule is currently being built. Air show coordinators interested in booking the A-10 demonstration team should send requests to [email protected].
