Description
Caption from August 23, 1991 Sacramento Bee reads "Lt. Col. Darryl Klein of the 926th Tactical Fighter Group in New Orleans finishes paper work Thursday after flying an A-10 Warthog anti-tank plane to McClellan Air Force Base, where it will be put on display." "An A-10 'tank killer' plane which saw action during the Gulf War and was heavily damaged by enemy fire arrived at McClellan AFB today to be used for spare parts to fix other A-10's and then put on display in the base museum. The base is the national repair center for the plane. Piloting the craft was Lt. Col. Darryl Klein from New Orleans. Klein sat on the ground to finish the necessary paperwork he has to do after every flight. He spent a couple of minutes going around the plane showing where anti-aircraft fire had hit the plane. During battle the plane made a non-hydraulic powered landing on one engine, the first time that maneuver had been made with this type of plane."
