Assigned to the 434th TFW at Grissom AFB, Indiana they flew the A-37 Dragonfly trainer
for the next 8 years. In 1981 the squadron took a huge leap forward when they started to
fly the A-10 Thunderbolt II. In 1987 while still at Grissom they were once again re-assigned
this time to the 930th TFG that in turn became the 930th Operations Group a USAF

Fighter Squadron, known as “Hoosier Hogs”. For 7 years the squadron continued to fly
but 4 months after the D-Day Anniversary flight the squadron was inactivated on October
1, 1994.
