Here’s How An A-10 Pilot Reacted When He Learned He Was Getting The Flying Cross
An A-10 pilot said he was surprised when he discovered he would be receiving the Flying Cross Award during an interview with the Daily Caller News Foundation.
Maj. Brett DeVries of the Michigan Air National Guard’s 107th Fighter Squadron received the Flying Cross on Nov.6 for conducting a safe emergency landing of an A-10 Thunderbolt, according to an Air Force press release. The landing was believed to be a first in the aircraft’s history where both the landing gear and canopy weren’t used, according to a 2017 Air Force news release.
