I love the A-10 as the tank buster. Nothing says help is on the way like 7,000 rounds a minute with uranium tipped to give the inside of a tank a nice firestorm.

I have to say I almost like the SR-71 Blackbird more. No other jet has as great a missle defense like the Blackbird-just speed up. I still wish they kept it going for recon ( give it much needed modern avionics)

Just something about going 2,100+ mph. Now that's a quick way to put a smile on your face

Anyone know the name of the C-130's they retrofitted into flying gunships? I've seen them in air museums and they look badass. They have freaking howitzers on them!

Next year I'm going to try and get my dad and I to PhanCon.
Dude my dad worked on F-4s during 'Nam as well. He was stationed out of Ubon and Utopao.


The A-10 has always been my favorite plane of all time.

If their the best of the best... why do they need training?
Always thought that was the stupidest saying the air force had...

but yeah, c130 has been around for a long time. remember 03 in iraq every damn one of them I flew in was with the high rollers... guess where they were outta...lol

took me awhile to find this thread. I too love the A10, and B1B, was initially a huge fan of the F-22, but not so much anymore, but how can you not love the f-18. We can all thank Top Gun for making the F-14 super badass as well
