Wonderful shots of those excellent aircrafts Frank. I am a big fan of the A-10 Thunderbolt...That lovely sound of BRRRRRRR. Love it. Thanks for posting Frank, really enjoyed them.

Thanks, Hunter. I do take a lot of airplane pictures and I enjoy sharing them. I'm also a real fan of the A-10. The generals have been trying to get rid of the A-10 since it went operational in 1979(?), because it's cheap ($18 million per copy) to build and it's ugly. The generals think that the F-35 ($95 million per copy) can replace the A-10. I don't think so. As has been said about the B-2 Spirit, when the last B-2 is delivered to Davis-Monthan for dry storage, the crew will go home on a B-52. When the last F-35 goes into storage out in the Arizona desert, a flight of A-10s will do a fly-over to say goodby.

I think my favorite picture is the banking Blackhawk helicopter with the airman sitting in the open side door. That takes major kahonnies!

I have heard of that. I am not sure why they would want to eliminate the A-10...it's a one man wrecking machine. Like everything, we're progressing into the future. Thanks again for posting the photos.

P.S. The 2 mustangs are in wonderful condition, and those shots of the Blue Angels are great.

Nice stuff!. I and others sometimes are reluctant to chase pictures off site. Maybe we're lazy or have security fears. Have you considered directly posting on the Forum under Aircraft and the on going post is Aircraft photography. I'll try to find it and drag it to the top.
