It is possible I guess for Retro14 (PolAF F-16 #4040) to land at Lajes on her way to USA. Could you pay a little attention to her?

Any serials or at least tailcodes? So I think, other 'Hogs' will replace the remaining Moody A-10Cs at Bagram AB, Afghanistan, as part of USAF's upcoming AEF 9/10 (Cycle 7) rotation (May - August 2009). After their extended deployment, the 75th EFS was already replaced by the 74th EFS, but only by personnel.

Mazda81 - 86 were probably 81-0964, 78-0598, 78-0600, 82-0664, 78-0596 and 81-0979.

Confirmation welcome!

Thanks a lot for your serial numbers info, Mark! If the 23rd Fighter Group, 23rd Wing, Moody AFB, Georgia, really deployed six "fresh" A-10Cs to Bagram AB, Afghanistan, then the 74th Expeditionary Fighter Squadron will stay for USAF's entire AEF 9/10 (Cycle 7) rotation (May - August 2009). But in this case, Dutchmil must be wrong with his 74th EFS redeployment info:

According to a Stars and Stripes news article, elements from the 81st Fighter Squadron, 52nd Fighter Wing, Spangdahlem AB, Germany, will deploy to Afghanistan in September - that would be part of USAF's upcoming AEF 1/2 (Cycle eight) rotation (September - December 2009).
