Beautiful pics, Neil! My dad was a weapons troop on the A-10 in the 70's, at Myrtle beach AFB in SC. I can remember as a kid him taking me to the base and putting me in the cockpit while they maintained the bomb racks
. I was determined to fly the hawg until, apparently, you have to be "smart" to do so
. So fate led me to my current job that allows me to fly in the Pavehawk, Combat Talon/ Shadow, AND work with the A-10s who perform rescue escort. Talk about a perfect mix.
