    Local cafe had a decent cheeseburger. But it and the sub sammich I had for lunch started fighting. I created a cloud in the hotel room. Completely desecrated the area. My coworker wasn't as amused as I was. Of course I'm paying for it now. COME ON ICE CREAM!

    Driving back to the hotel today we heard a whining screeching sound. Shortly after, an A10 flew overhead and he was trimming the tree tops! Couple seconds later a second passed overhead. I don't care what abilities different US aircraft have, the A10 simply oozes whoop ass!

    nap of the earth flying is intense and great fun------the only thing more intense and frightening is riding with orchidman
    esp if he is driving off road.

    Nobody has anything that compares to them. Several years back some politicians wanted to phase them out but there is nothing that can take their place. When groundpounders need some heavy backup, right here, right now, A-10's can deliver some serious whoop ass.

    Whoop-Ass indeed!

    I love seeing them. I'm pretty close as the A10 flies to Ft Lenard Wood where they come out of. Of course where I was about the only thing around is mountains and trees, so I guess that's why they were flying so low. And folks around here welcome Murican Badass, and don't mind them flying over skimming the trees.

    While the A10 oozes whoop ass, and the sight of one would make anyone being targeted poop their pants, there aint no jet that oozes sexy like a WW2 prop plane oozes sexy.

    Is the ice cream being taken orally or as a suppository?

    In Vietnam, the A1 Skyraider and 'the Jolly Green Giant' were a welcome sight/sound to downed pilots. The A1 was a flying tank, well armored with lots of hard points for bombs and rockets, and had those .50 BMG MGs for close work. These are the ones I got to see quite a bit of, and that engine on those thing just screamed horsepower. Great loiter time, too, and one of those prop planes scored the first NVA jet destroyed in VN.

    Cool vids in this article. Warthogs are a great asset and they need to keep them around because nothing else can what they were designed to as as good as they can.

    30 Mike Mike does some serious damage. Apaches use 30mm too and Bradley Fighting Vehicles (BFVs) use 25mm

    Last night, Butt Jerm was talking in his sleep. He was so loud that he woke up Mrs. Jerm. Fortunately, I slept through it all.

    I A-10s for sentimental reasons. It was the first airplane my son became qualified in and I have an empty 30mm shell on my desk that he got me from one of their runs at Davis Monthan AFB where he was stationed. BUT if you want to see what a can of WHOOPASS really looks like there is NOTHING in our inventory like the C-130 gunship. I'm waiting for my next souvenir from my daughter, an empty 105 that "might" have been fired in anger recently

    This video shows some A1 Skyraider Spads in action in VN with some of their Search and Rescue buddies. There's a song that is sung in it that has some 'words' that might not be politically correct; you've been duly warned.
