This clean-looking Warthog taxis by an appreciative crowd at the 2011 Andrews AFB Joint Services Open House.  The A-10 entered service in 1976, and is the only USAF  production-built aircraft designed solely for close air support, attacking tanks, armored vehicles, and other ground targets with deadly efficiency.  Barring political cancellation of the aircraft, a program is underway to extend the lifespan of the aircraft past 2040.  Nikon D300 w/300mm, processed with Aperture.
