Tour - USA

Hawgsmoke- September 2024


The A-10 has outlived many budget cuts and is still very much part of the USAF. In 2024, another Hawgsmoke will be organised at Davis-Monthan AFB, starting at 11 September 2024. We will organise a tour to this exercise and the greater Tucson area of about a week length. We think this is a nice tour with a lot of variety.

We have run this tour before in 2012, 2014, 2016 and 2018.

The itinerary that follows is to be considered as preliminary.

On Sunday 8 September we will fly to the USA and return to the Netherlands on Sunday 15 September 2024.

During the tour we will spend a couple of days at the Hawgsmoke exercise at Davis Monthan AFB and can also have a look at Luke AFB, MCAS Yuma, NAF El Centro, Tucson IAP. We will try to arrange visits, but these bases are also very good from outside the fence.
