The Standard-Examiner reported that Ogden Air Logistics Complex personnel at Hill Air Force Base in northern Utah swapped out the wings on 162 A-10s, with the remainder installed at Osan Air Base in South Korea.
The rewinging project to replace wings that outlived their lifespans started in 2011 and included using A-10 parts provided by an aircraft storage facility at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson, Arizona.
A-10s started entering operational service in the late 1970s.
