Thunderbolt IIs launch into Alaskan skies during RF-A 16-2

U.S. Air Force maintenance Airmen, right, make adjustments to an A-10 Thunderbolt II twin-engine, ground-attack aircraft assigned to the 354th Fighter Squadron (FS) out of Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Ariz., as another maintainer guides the work from the aircraft's cockpit June 6, 2016, during RED FLAG-Alaska (RF-A) 16-2 at Eielson Air Force Base, Alaska. This Pacific Air Forces commander-directed field training exercise enables U.S. and partner nation forces like the "Bulldogs" maintainers to sharpen their maintenance skills by launching aircraft and aircrews for simulated combat sorties in a realistic threat environment.
