Hogs for Hawgsmoke

Members of the American Legion Riders from Kansas ride their motorcycles along the flight line at the Salina, Kan., airport Oct. 15 to open the "Lost Hogs" ceremony at Hawgsmoke 2008. The 30-minute memorial service paid homage to all A-10 pilots who have passed away. The ceremony was part of Hawgsmoke 2008, an A-10 aerial bombing and gunnery competition hosted by the 442nd Fighter Wing, an Air Force Reserve A-10 unit from Whiteman Air Force Base, Mo. During the memorial, the names of all deceased A-10 pilots were read aloud and honored with a missing-man A-10 flyover. (U.S. Air Force photo/Maj. David Kurle)
