Taken today after an A-10 flight simulating a patrol in the air above Kandahar Air Base in Afghanistan. USAF 303rd FS Whiteman was used for the flight. Early morning takeoff, then proceeded to fly a loop pattern northeast of the airbase, before returning after an uneventful few circuits.
Takeoff and view off left wing towards the mountains where the patrol circuit was flown
