aircommando130 Posted March 5, 2022 Share Posted March 5, 2022 The A-10 is an awesome airplane! I watched them work over old tanks on the range at Ft. Hood before the "slick" C-130's came across the drop zone...yes it was a exercise but still pretty impressive. Later when I was a MC-130 loadmaster the A-10 guys would fly with us for protection and it was cool to watch them scissoring across the top of us going to the drop zone. They were with us to suppress threats ahead of and around us. During Desert Storm Gen Horner's son was an A-10 pilot (a captain at the time) out of Woodbridge, England so I bet he was just a bit concerned about his boy being in the war. After the war and everybody redeployed back I carried the general and his wife to Mildenhall. They were going over to see his son. He signed my flight orders for me and was a great guy to talk to having just redeployed back a few months before myself. Cheers...Ron Quote Link to post Share on other sites
