Deployed 188th maintainers keep Warthogs flying high over Afghanistan

Senior Airman Wes Pool, a 188th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron A-10 crew chief currently deployed with the 455th Expeditionary Aircraft Maintenance Squadron, points out a patched hole in his U.S. Air Force A-10 Thunderbolt II at Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan, July 7, 2012. Pool had the plane patched and ready to fly less than 24 hours after it took direct fire from enemy forces while providing close-air support to ambushed coalition forces in eastern Afghanistan on June 28, 2012.
