Prologue From G Suit & Helmet Not Required:
“One day you will walk out to the airplane knowing it will be your last flight, or you will walk out and not know it is your last flight.”
This had just happened to me. I did not realize that I had flown my last flight in the fun loving and mostly forgiving A-10A Warthog. I was on a Connecticut ANG deployment with some of my unit to George AFB California, flying is support of the war games exercise that was known as Red Flag.
