The airmen had been gone on a six month deployment to Afghanistan as part of Operation Enduring Freedom. In the group were A-10 pilots who provided close air support and the airmen who maintained the jets.
Tomorrow, 15 A-10 pilots are expected to return to the base. They will fly to DM in 2 separate formations.
