Conversion continuation: Tail 613 bids farewell to 188th

A pilot with the 23rd Wing climbs into the cockpit of a 188th Fighter Wing A-10C Thunderbolt II "Warthog" (Tail No. 613) while Master Sgt. Steve Bunting, a crew chief with the 188th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron, prepares the aircraft for takeoff at Ebbing Air National Guard Base, Fort Smith, Ark. The aircraft was delivered from the 188th Fighter Wing to Moody Air Force Base, Ga., March 11, 2014, as part of the 188th's mission conversion from the A-10 to a remotely piloted aircraft, intelligence and targeting mission. The 188th has five remaining A-10s on station. The next A-10 is slated to depart in April. The final two aircraft are scheduled to leave the 188th June 7, 2014.
