Pilot brings battle-damaged A-10 home safely

I know it's old news by now, but for those of you who haven't seen this yet, the pictures and the story are amazing. A testament to both how well built the A-10's are and the quality of training the pilots receive.

Thanks for bringing us the pics. I always thought that those were tough birds, but I have new respect for the "tubs" and their pilots.

Stay tuned for a similar EA-6B story. Not battle damaged but impressive nonetheless - investigations ongoing, so I think I have to keep my mouth shut for now.
