Last Flight of an A-10 at Pope is Scheduled

The 23rd Fighter Group expects its last A-10 attack jet flight at Pope Air Force Base to be on Dec. 19. The group is moving to Moody Air Force Base at Valdosta, Ga. The 2005 Base Closure and Realignment law mandated the move. The group's airplanes have been flying at Moody since September. Most airplanes are being upgraded before arriving at Moody. The move is taking about 1,000 airmen away from Pope
