Air Force Times

Lawmakers in both the House and Senate are planning legislation to block the Air Force's plans to retire the A-10.

Air Force officials say they are frustrated with lawmakers' offbase claims that the service does not care about the close air support mission, or about the lives of service members on the ground whom the A-10 protects.
