Surprise aircraft makes EADS memorable photograph historic

More than 150 New York Air National Guardsmen, Canadian Forces members and government civilians from the Eastern Air Defense Sector posed for a group shot in front of two F-16s from the 180th Fighter Wing, Ohio Air National Guard, on Wednesday, June 9 at the Griffiss International Airport in Rome, N.Y. One of the first U.S. military units to respond to the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, EADS group photo is one of a series of 9/11 20th anniversary events the unit has planned. Having the photo with the 180th Fighter Wing F-16s was fitting. The plane directly behind the formation was part of the initial response on 9/11. EADS thanks Griffiss International Airport, Million Air Flight Base Operations and the Oneida County Department of Aviation for their cooperation and support. Photo by Airman 1st Class Tiffany Scofield, 174th Attack Wing, New York Air National Guard.
