Those are pretty cool. Thanks for sharing them.

I remember about 10 or 11 years back, when I was on Eglin AFB, they had planned to decommission the last A-10 in active duty by firing its engines on some heat plates(I can't remember what they are called, but they use them to fire AB's in testing) while parked.


Nice to see they found out they still had a purpose to serve, and do they do it well.
