A U.S. Air Force A-10 Thunderbolt II from the 75th Expeditionary Fighter Squadron, Bagram Air Field, Afghanistan flies a combat sortie over northeast Afghanistan. The A-10 Thunderbolt was activated into service in the US Air Force in 1976, and almost forty years later remains the sole aircraft specifically designed for close air support of ground forces.

Favorite plane, hands down. Well…of the post-Vietnam models. Too many awesome machines to choose from.
