I'm working near Reese, MI, just east of Saginaw. A pair of A-10s just flew over low, (yes, I am sure they were A-10s), probably less than 250ft heading south. This is the 3rd time in 3 weeks of seeing them. The last time they were heading low as well, towards the south east.

What's up with the low flyovers?

Did they see you in your GHILLIE suit?

No, but they may have seen the shine from my tinfoil hat.

Note to self, shop online for tactical tinfoil.

En route to fix Detroit no doubt.

Headed to the standoff in Muskegon. So much whining about militarization, SWAT decided to show them what militarization really looked like.

The Air Guard has an A-10 Unit right on Lake St. Clair.

They might be ramping up training in anticipation for an upcoming deployment

(if you can call a 3 month vacation a deployment )

Yea... I'm the bitter army guy that has done the 12 month type

Local Guard has had Apaches doing NOE day/night training in my area the last couple weeks. Our sheriffs department actually put out a bulletin b/c they were experiencing increase phone calls about it. Pretty normal for me as I live along a river that gets alot of attention from apaches and bh's.

Not sure where you're at but there's A10s at Selfridge.

Reese is almost at the center point along a straight line from Selfridge (where they are stationed) to Camp Grayling (where they often train).

You can see them a lot flying over my father's property in Standish as well.

I wish I would see A10 flying around here. I think they look cool.

Most likely preparing for the Red Dawn remake to start a mass panic across the country.

Years ago I lived in Battle Creek and you would see them flying around the area. I am sure they are simply hunting swamp donkeys

Gosh darn, why do I always think of "Warriors, come out and play" when I think of that line.

Probably out of selfridge air force base . They fly over the marina all summer.

I used to live and work near davison, east of flint, and would see a pair fly by almost every couple of weeks, if not once a week.
