These A-10 Warthogs have to be models shot against a gradient background, right? Wrong, apparently. It's an official US Air Force photo straight from their Flickr account, taken by Senior Airman Sierra Dopfel with a crappy Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS, according to the EXIF data.
A pair of Air Force A-10 Thunderbolt II aircraft fly in formation June, 7, 2014 over Kansas. The aircraft, assigned to the 188th Fighter Wing at Ebbing Air National Guard Base, Fort Smith, Ark., were the final two A-10s to depart Fort Smith as the 188th FW transitions from a fighter mission to an intelligence, reconnaissance and surveillance/remotely piloted aircraft mission.
