The Air Force has upgraded 16 Davis-Monthan A-10s, bringing back the Sandy mission. Sandy was the callsign used, especially by the Skyraiders in Vietnam, for aircraft flying Combat Search and Rescue missions. The Sandy aircraft were the ones flying cover for the helicopters that performed the actual rescue.
The upgrade includes an upgraded communications system, that allows both voice and text communications to downed aircrew, JTACs, and other ground forces. It also automatically updates GPS coordinates for aircrew members.
