The excellent video in this post features A-10C 80-0275 with new A-10C Thunderbolt II Demo Team Heritage paint scheme performing at the Great Pacific Airshow 2019.

Taken on Oct. 5, 2019 at Huntington Beach, California, the excellent video in this post features A-10C 80-0275 with new A-10C Thunderbolt II Demo Team Heritage paint scheme performing at the Great Pacific Airshow 2019.

Every fall The Great Pacific Airshow (TGPA) attracts people from all corners of the globe to the pristine beaches of Huntington Beach, California to experience the best airshow the United States has to offer. The Great Pacific Airshow provides viewers with an avenue to celebrate patriotism, adventure, and technology through the dozens of airborne performers and their incredible acrobatic feats. Produced by Huntington Beach-based creative + production agency Code Four, The Great Pacific Airshow is a family-friendly, inspiring event that thrills people of all ages.

Since its launch in 2016 TGPA has exploded in popularity. In 2018 we had unprecedented attendance of more than 2 million people (!) making Huntington Beach the destination for the country’s best airshow experience.

As the video descriptions says, the unmistakable engine noise can only mean an A-10 Warthog is about to enter the area with a demonstration of agility and tight minimum radius turn during Saturday’s schedule of the Great Pacific Airshow.

Airmen of the 355th Equipment Maintenance Squadron gave A-10 Thunderbolt II 80-0275, assigned to the A-10 Demonstration Team at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, a custom paint job resembling a World War II-era P-51 Mustang.
