May272010 - Chronicle Of The USAF A-10 Culture

Warthog News is a fabulous resource about the US Air Force A-10 culture

 'A-10 Warthog Week' at Airpigz

Catch the Air Combat Command A-10 East Demo Team
at the Indy Air Show June 12th & 13th

 My research for info on the Fairchild-Republic A-10 Warthog in these last several days has lead me many times to the really comprehensive website called Warthog News.  This site has a huge amount of great photos plus loads of info related to the active deployment of the USAF A-10's around the world.  But even more than that, you get a real feel for the human culture that surrounds these military operations.

 If you have any genuine interest in the Warthog, I highly recommend you spend some time following the extensive daily postings at this blog.

 And, hang in there with me as I hope to crank out several more A-10 posts as 'A-10 Warthog Week' moves on toward the Memorial Day weekend.

...and nothing in the pipeline as a replacement. maybe some genius will figure a rehab/refit/retrofit next time we need something like it. sort of like the A10s in Vietnam...

Charles- I've got more info coming tomorrow, but I've been reading that they are thinking the Warthog can continue to serve until about 2030. There's a big replacement/upgrade wing program just beginning.
