AF Says, “A-10 to stay 'indefinitely'”



Air Force Materiel Command chief Gen. Ellen Pawlikowski recently told AviationWeek that the depot line that maintains and repairs the Air Force's 283 A-10s has been reopened to full capacity.

“They have re-geared up, we’ve turned on the depot line, we’re building it back up in capacity and supply chain,” said Pawlikowski. “Our command, anyway, is approaching this as another airplane that we are sustaining indefinitely.”

3. Good move

The plane is durable, simple to maintain, inexpensive (relatively) to operate and, most of all effective in its mission.

5. After the ass kicking McCain gave the AF CoS, I'm not surprised

4-Star generals do not like being made to look stupid.
