    Default A-10 Warthogs in Action Over Kandahar

    THese aircraft are beyond awesome. And Michael Yon is probably the best war correspondant there is out there

    http://www.foxnews.com/scitech/2010/...est=latestnews

    As two pilots geared up to fly from Kandahar to neighboring Helmand to support a British unit, Michael Yon takes an up-close look at the fantastically agile and advanced A-10 Warthog.

    A-10s are definitely bad-ass.

    Need some video though.

    Face piles of trials with smiles. It riles them to believe that you perceive the web they weave.

    Couple friends are retired A-10 pilots. Not the prettiest, but it packs some punch.

    Ahhh, the good ole A-10. That is my 2nd favorite combat aircraft next to the B-1B Lancer. When I was stationed at Aviano AB, IT I remember the A-10 Pilots (Hog Drivers) were for the most part pretty down to earth. I can't say that for the F-16 and F-15 pilots though.
