Blog Post Wacky Weekend 9 COMMENTS And if the higher-ups get their way, the A-10 will be replaced by the expensive and nearly useless F-35. Yes, and it's a crying shame. Old NFO will enjoy this post, I predict. Another wonderful aircraft that I'll likely never get a chance to fly. Sigh. So few aircraft do what aircraft are really made for–pounding the snot out of people and things on the ground. The A-10 excels at this. Yep, NICE is right! And the Air Farce is once again trying to get rid of the Hogs! Idjits… If I was in the USAF, I'd want to fly the hog. They are like the B-52, they won't be out of date for 50 years. However the USAF doesn't get it. The hog is zexy. What they need, is an A10 pilot to make is way up the chain…or somebody who had their but saved by one. Comments are closed.
