While out and about today, I wound up near the Moody AFB bombing range.

I love my workplace.

Sweet...

Awesome. I have to say that the A10 is the coolest plane in the US arsenal.

I've got wood

Exactly what I was hoping to see

My favorite plane, next to the North American P51 Mustang.

I didn't make it, so you'll have to ignore the grammar-fail.

Damn I love that thing. Thanks for sharing!

Look up Dos Gringos - "I wish I had a gun just like the A-10" sometime when you're not at work, not near any kids and aren't trying to drink anything.

Ah, the sound of freedom...an A-10's GAU-8A Avenger cannon singing.


You lucky bastard!

And to think the AF wanted to shit can them...

Someone here has been firing one of those all morning long. Sounds great, even from two miles away.

Thanks for sharing, I used to watch the 111th from PA practice at Warren Grove B.R. here in the Pine Barrens of NJ, always fun to watch.

Awesome.

I got to watch that close up once......very cool! Its nice to know they're on our side!
Link Posted: 7/18/2008 6:19:45 AM EDT
I've never understood why the AirForce doesn't like them; can anyone explain their reasoning to me?

I guess the A-10 isn't sexy in the F-15 sort of way, but I can't imagine a more capable plane. Are they hard to maintain or something?

Nice pics Larry, thanks for sharing! I think someone in the GSHTF is missing you lately although the season hasn't started yet.
Link Posted: 7/18/2008 6:25:37 AM EDT
I wish they would build more.

GSHTF?
Link Posted: 7/18/2008 6:02:25 PM EDT
Oh, I can hear those TF34s right now. There is just NOTHING like an A-10...

Playing OPFOR one time had an A-10 do a simulated gun run on our position.

It was a thing of beauty seeing him roll in on us and even better that it was simulated so I'm alive to talk about it.

Yeah, I guess I do...I'm not talking P-47.
Link Posted: 7/19/2008 11:33:08 AM EDT
Yeah I miss the A10

My father stationed at Davis Monthan when I was younger and I used to see and hear those beauties all the time.

My favorite

I was an SP in the early to mid 80's and when I was at Osan and would be on the perimeter during an ALERT I was sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo glad to hear them on station over head! Man those are one bad a@# aircraft!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!­!!!!!!!!!

Thats awsome
Link Posted: 7/19/2008 2:47:49 PM EDT
When I was working on a farm in the State College PA area in the late 80's they would fly low and fast up the valley on training flights, probably out of Indiantown Gap?. One days I was on top of the 80' high concrete silo working on the silage blower spout, and 2 of them rolled over, dived, came straight at me, then snap rolled off.

Those engines definetly make a cool sound, always dropped what we were doing to watch them.

I can't decide which is better.

Get both!

Here's one I took. The second picture will show you how long ago.



Link Posted: 7/19/2008 7:28:12 PM EDT
Probably the best 'pilots' plane in our arsenal. As close to 'seat of the pants flying as it gets now days in our air force. I watch them every year at the Reno air races. They can do some amazing acrobats! God Bless America!
Link Posted: 7/19/2008 7:34:44 PM EDT
They should rename the plane the Phoenix, because the program was all but dead and was resurrected when the USAF realized the F-16 just couldn't do the job.

Link Posted: 7/19/2008 8:08:58 PM EDT
I thought you guys were talking about this kind of Warthog...







But next to the P-51D Mustang, and the B17, the A10 WARTHOG is my favorite!
