A-10s provide air support to Santa, ground troops

An A-10 “Thunderbolt” takes off at Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan, for a mission on Christmas Eve, Dec. 24. The A-10, or more affectionately known as the “Warthog”, has served in the U.S. Air Force’s arsenal for over 40 years and continues to provide effective close air support to ground troops.
