Great shot Zdenek. Makes me think it has plenty of grunt.
Oh! A10, Amazing!

Looking at this photo (great perspective btw) makes me realize how much of this aircraft is engine! As a GE Aviation alum - luv those TF-34s! Of course, the GE GAU-8 is amazing also! Long live the Warthog!!!
Mike Geer
Probably saved more lives that just about any other ground support aircraft.
As a former airborne infantryman, these were my favorite aircraft. Now as a civilian flight instructor these are *STILL* my favorite aircraft. Beautiful photo!
Jerome Tre

one Bad Ass bird! I saw Warthogs in action on the highway of death during Desert Storm. 100% kill rate every pass, all day long! oo-rah!

Mike, can't argue but don't forget about the P-47 "Jug", different era, same effect!
This plane lived at NYANG 174th for most of the '80s Msgt Jim Varney was it's crewchief

Not real pretty, one hell of a war plane
Chris Croft
Mike, don't want to split hairs over which is the foremost close air support aircraft, but let's not overlook the A1-H Skyraider/Spad.This aircraft was a real tactical asset for Marine and Army ground units in Viet Nam. Just like the Warthog, it was a flying tank, and the troops loved them.

SUPER plane it's a beast...!! nothing to replace it! very Good picture
soupy264, you seem familiar with this particular aircraft, is it a 78 model# 0670 or is it an 80 model #0279 like the paint on the nose and tail seem to indicate?
