I was the first crew chief on this bird. Something I am very proud of. It was 1977 at Nellis AFB. Before that A-10's were sent to DM only for inspection then sent to Nellis of the training squadrons. After we got the first 14 aircraft then other bases started to get their planes. MSgt Larry Voss was incharge of the A-10 section of the 57th OMS. It was a really good airplane even though I'm told it 'crabbed' when it flew. The right wing was 2.75" longer that the left. Don't belive me, measure it. The paint test we did on the original paint was really cool we didn't wash the planes at all the first year. Then the poka-dot paint came just before Operation JAWS. That was at Fort Ord (Hunter-Ligget Army Airfield) near Monterey CA.

This aircraft was my first ever assigned to me. It was the first production model. I remember geting called to end of runway all the time for a redball because it had longer flap tracks than the other a-10s . And at full flaps never looked like they were full down. I miss this aircraft it was a good jet!

This aircraft was my very first aircraft, at davis mothan in 1987. It was the very first production model that fairchild made. I still remember all the "red balls I got called on the radio because the flap tracks were longer than the rest of the jets. When the flaps were fully down, it looked like they were'nt! So end of runway guys would call a " red ball"! Besides that, a great bird to work on!!! Miss it!
