  • Military Hot Photo?

    I had the pleasure of being along on a flight of 2 A-10 records being broken Friday the 30th. Most hours flown by an A-10 pilot and most hours combined by a 4 ship.

    1-Col Mott will reach approximately 4,570 on the 30th
    2-achieving a total of approximately 15,550 combined flight hours.

    104th FW

    Would this warrant a YES on the hot photo option or is that civilian only?

    My initial guess would be that this is not a hot photo reason. It does not meet the standards for hot photo. Now if you had the first pictures of a new military airplane then you would indeed have a hot photo.

      No, it would not be considered hot, as it is more a pilot achievement, then related to the plane.

      Military hot photos can include the following (examples)

      - special colors (at least covering the whole tail fin)
      - new type in service with an Air Force
      - first flight of new type

      So more or less the same as with the airliners
