Probably part of this exercise:

"Seven of 11 Sqn's aircraft left the unit's home base at RAF Coningsby in Lincolnshire on 21 April 2007 for Davis-Monthan AFB in Arizona - the home of the USAF's Fairchild A-10 community. After a week of work-up activities, the RAF unit participated in a two-week exercise, during which 67 live 455kg (1,000lb) bombs were dropped, including more than 40 Raytheon Paveway II laser-guided bombs, plus laser/GPS-guided Enhanced Paveway IIs and freefall weapons.

I bet they had fun bombing (literally) around the desert.
