A-10 Thunderbolt II's Grounded 10 January, 2018

A-10 Thunderbolt II aircrafts at the Davis-Monthan Air Force Base are grounded. It was announced that the flights were stopped because of the oxygen problems pilots had.

At the end of November, flights were canceled when two pilots felt hypoxia-like symptoms during flight, and the both aircraft returned to the base using reserve oxygen systems.

During the investigation of the cause of the problem, the A-10 Thunderbolt II flights of the base were stopped until a second order.
