Gotta a ride in my favorite!!

I spent 10 years in the Air Force and got several check rides in combat aircraft. By far my favortite is the A-10 Warthog. When I call in close air support there is nothing more effective than the A-10. Having saved my team many times the old girl ranks number 1. I was lucky enough to get a check ride in an A-10 trainer, don't let that fool you it is still a flying cannon with aircraft parts attached. We hit the gun range in Arizona and did several gun passes. You could not wipe the smile off my face after my eyes came back to focus. That thing has a nasty disposition. Depleted uranium shells and a crazy man at the stick what else can you ask for. A very close second is the AC-130, a round every 2 square inches the size of 2 football fields in one pass, now thats close air support.
