Lt. Col. Ryan Richardson, 514th Flight Test Squadron commander and A-10 test pilot, does a high-speed pass after a functional check flight on an A-10 Thunderbolt II, tail no. 80-0252, at Hill Air Force Base, Utah, July 25, 2019. The aircraft is from the Moody Air Force Base, Georgia, home of the 23d Wing Flying Tigers, a unit that traces its heritage back to the Flying Tigers of WWII that painted sharks teeth on the nose of the P-40 Warhawk fighter planes they flew. The aircraft was the last of 173 A-10s to receive new wings under the Enhanced Wing Assembly program to extend the flying service life of the fleet. (U.S. Air Force photo by Alex R. Lloyd)
