    Posted : Thursday Feb 16, 2012 16:03:48 EST

    The Air Force will lose an A-10 squadron in Germany as well as an air control squadron in Italy as part of proposed budget cuts in fiscal 2013, a senior defense official said Thursday.

    The 81st Fighter Squadron at Spangdahlem Air Base, Germany, would be inactivated under the Air Force’s plan, eliminating 20 A-10s and 525 airmen’s positions. The 603rd Air Control Squadron at Aviano Air Base, Italy, would also be cut along with 336 positions.
