Return of the tigers

Lt. Col. Mickey Moore, a pilot with the 442nd Fighter Wing, Detachment 1, prepares to climb into the cockpit an A-10 Thunderbolt II for a training mission at Moody Air Force Base, Ga. Colonel Moore is one of several Air Force reservists at Moody laying the groundwork for an Air Force Reserve Command A-10 associate fighter group that will be teamed up with Moody's active-duty 23rd FG. The 23rd FG's parent organization, the 23rd Wing, traces its Air Force roots to the legendary Flying Tigers of World War II. Detachment 1 will become the 476th FG and it will share that lineage. The detachment is a geographically separated unit of the 442nd FW, an AFRC A-10 wing at Whiteman AFB, Mo.(US Air Force photo/Master Sgt. Bill Huntington)
