    The original finding aid described this photograph as: [Complete] Scene Caption: Medium shot. An A-10 Thunderbolt decends after refueling from a McGuire AFB, KC-10 aircraft (Not shown). The A-10 aircraft is specifically designed for close air support of ground forces. They are simple, effective and survivable twin-engine jet aircraft that can be used against all ground targets, including tanks and other ground vehicles. The A-10 has excellent manueverability at low air speeds and altitude, and are highly accurate weapons-delivery platforms. They can loiter near battle areas for extended periods od time and operate under 1000 foot ceilings (303.3 meters) with 1.5-mile (2.4 kilometers) visibility. Their wide combat radius and short takeoff and landing capability permit operations in and out of locations near front lines.
