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

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.

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.
