  • Airmen scrap Moody's last A-10A

    Moody demolished its last remaining A-10A Thunderbolt II, the predecessor to the current A-10C model, on Dec. 1, here. The demolished aircraft was manufactured in 1980 in Baltimore, Md., and was officially completed on Nov. 3, 1981 before it was assigned to Air Force bases in South Carolina, the United Kingdom and Arizona. It was then brought to Moody in 2011 to be used as a training aircraft. A lot of A-10As received upgrades in technology that converted them to A-10Cs, but a few remained as static displays, training aircraft and some parts were sued for spare parts.
