A-10s, AFSOC Aircraft Land on Michigan Highway to Practice ACE | Air Force Mag

A-10s execute the first integrated combat turn on a public US roadway. 

On a Michigan roadway, pickup vehicles and minivans were replaced by A-10s and U-28s while Air National Guard soldiers prepared for nimble combat employment. Five distinct types of fixed-wing aircraft landed and took off from a 9,000-foot stretch of Michigan State Route M-28. It is the first time integrated combat turns have been completed on an American public roadway. In Estonia in 2016, A-10s landed on a motorway during a similar practice. The landings are part of a broader effort by the Air Force to adopt and advance the idea of “agile combat employment.”
