    8N 124th FW heritage paint [Image 8 of 16]

    8N 124th FW heritage paint

    8N depiction on the side of a U.S. Air Force A-10 Thunderbolt II from the Idaho Air National Guard’s 124th Fighter Wing is painted as part of a WWII heritage paint scheme at the Air National Guard paint facility in Sioux City, Iowa. The paint scheme is designed to replicate the look of the original P-47 Thunderbolt as it appeared during the 2nd World War. The “8N” painted on the side of the aircraft indicates the aircraft code of the 405th Fighter Squadron. The 124th Fighter Wing conceived the idea in order to commemorate the unit’s 75th anniversary and lineage to their predecessor, the 405th Fighter Squadron.
