917 FG prepares for inactivation

Local photo journalists await the takeoff of three A-10 Thunderbolt II jet aircraft from Barksdale Air Force Base, La., April 8, 2013. The jets, which are assigned to the 917th Fighter Group, left the Barksdale runway for the last time. The 917th FG is scheduled to be inactivated by the end of September 2013. The aircraft and personnel assigned to the 917th FG are being relocated to different bases and locations. The inactivation will affect more than 500 Airmen at Barksdale and have a projected 40 million dollar impact on the local economy. (U.S. Air Force photo by Master Sgt. Jeff Walston/Released)
