Crews assigned to the 576th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron at Hill Air Force Base paint three variations of nose art on A-10 Thunderbolt II aircraft that come to the Ogden Air Logistics Complex for depot repairs, modifications and maintenance. Not all A-10s get nose art, but for the ones that do, paint crews refer to the different paint schemes by most prominent feature, the teeth. The application of nose art is the last step in maintenance before the aircraft is delivered to flight test and back to the unit. (U.S. Air Force video by R. Nial Bradshaw)
