This year might become the last year that Hawgsmoke 2014 is held. With the A-10 facing withdrawal, we thought it might be a good idea to organise a trip to Hawgsmoke 2014 at Davis-Monthan AFB! Just like two years ago, we quickly found a lot of people that liked to join us and on Tuesday 8 July a group of 11 photographers joined at Schiphol for departure to the USA. Unfortunately, the PRO of Davis-Monthan AFB was not cooperative this time and a base-visit was cancelled shortly for departure.
We had an uneventful flight to Detroit for our short overlay. The second flight, from Detroit to Phoenix, was quite bumpy but the pilot delivered us safely to Phoenix. The weather in Phoenix was rough (sandstorms en thunderstorms) so the road-trip to Tucson was slow and tiring but we arrived safely in the end. We quickly went to bed for some sleep!
