I saw three pairs of two yesterday while out in the bay around 6:00ish.

And I could hear them patroling this morning from home.

You go guys!!!

Two A-10 Wart Hogs (tank busters) flew low and right over my house a couple of weeks ago. There are two nuclear plants along the shoreline of West Michigan. One about 15 miles South of St, Joseph and another about 15 miles North of St. Joseph.

BTW,
Just some background info:
The north end of Tampa Bay is bordered by McDill AFB...It is also the National Strategic Command Center. It is ordinarily home to a few Heavy-lift Divisions(C-5 Galaxy's, KC-10 Extenders) and also a few squadrons of A-10 Warthogs.

Lately, we see all kinds of military aircraft flying low and fast like F-18's, F-16's and on occasion a glimps of some F-15's.

Often Times, we just float around in the middle of the bay watching them patrol and perform maneuvers! Awesome display!

Way COOL!!!

I didn't know what to think for a second, but someone told me there is a memorial going on just down the street that they did a fly by for, but none the less, it's a tense day!! GOD BLESS AMERICA!!

These guys are here to fly and fight, as well as die, for our country. As an American, I would defend my country if called, in any capacity. Cook, mechanic, ditch-digger, whatever I was called to do, to defend this great country and her people.

Very cool OA! I used to love going there each April for the airshow. Too bad about this year, but there are more pressing issues.


My unwaivering support extends to all of our servicemen and women.
