190th Fighter Squadron trains at Saylor Creek Range

1st Lt. Tom Silkowski, A-10 Pilot with the 190th Fighter Squadron, examines the door and melted engine block from a vehicle destroyed during a strafe training mission at Saylor Creek Range August 21. The targets were moving as fast as 40 miles an hour while pilots took aim, disabled, and destroyed the remote controlled vehicles. This type of strafe training with moving targets prepares pilots for their real world missions of providing close air support for ground troops. (Air Force photo by Tech. Sgt. Sarah Pokorney)
