On Thursday 26 May 2016 a motivated party of four gathered at Schiphol for their departure to the United States. This trip was already the third 4Aviation tour to Hawgsmoke, the ultimate destination for A-10 Warthog fans. Via a stop at London-Heathrow the group arrived in Fort Worth, Texas in the evening of 26 May. The weather had been quite unstable over the last week and this was still the case looking at the dark skies. Hopefully the weather would clear up!
