Size matters: two A-10s and a C-5 on the ramp at Westover Air Reserve Base

Two Warthogs caught on their parking spots in front of a C-5A Galaxy at Westover ARB, Massachusetts.

Taken on Apr. 1, the photo was taken when as much as 16 A-10Cs (most probably 12 + four spares) from the 303rd Fighter Squadron “KC Hawgs”, 442nd Fighter Wing (AFRC), Whiteman AFB, Missouri, arrived at Westover ARB, homebase of the 439th Airlift Wing and its C-5 Galaxy airlifters, to perform an overnight stopover while enroute to Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan.

The A-10s are heading to Afghanistan where they will replace the 75th Expeditionary Fighter Squadron “Tiger Sharks” in support of Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF).
