This video is designed to bring you the closest you can get without actually being behind the controls of the mighty Warthog

Watch It Full Screen....

I saw this over at WHATBUBBAKNOWS

  1. There is nothing like one of these coming in on a "close air support" mission. They come in at tree top level {literally} and strafe the area. The only thing you hear is a distant whine and boom they are on top of you with their cannons going. Amazing shit!

  3. The A10 Warthog is a plane perfectly suited for its close air support role. There is nothing that comes close to what it can do.

  4. I thought the view seemed familiar. As a young Airman, I worked on the manned gunnery ranges at Gila Bend AFAF, AZ from 1979-1981. Our range served fighters from Luke AFM, Williams AFB, Davis-Montham AFB, and once in a while an FB-111 from Canon AFB, NM. As the flight made their approach for landing, you catch a glimpse of the bazillion planes stored adjacent to D-M. Those same planes on the video were probably flying missions on my range in the way-back. They are tough old birds.

    This video was recorded at the very same range (#2) that I was assigned to then. Enjoy!
