The last three A-10 attack jets at Pope Air Force Base flew out Wednesday morning for their new home in Georgia. The jets, part of the 23rd Fighter Group, are relocating to Moody Air Force Base near Valdosta, Ga. The move is part of the federal Base Realignment and Closure law. The group's airplanes have been flying at Moody since September. The move is taking about 1,000 airmen away from Pope.
