      And I want to see what an F-35 does when hit by a missile like that.

      Sometimes the best thing you can do is nothing.

      A-10’s a baddass plane. Heck of a pilot there too.

      I talked to the pilot in command of the 757 that lost the roof section over Hawaii. He said it was no big deal in the moment . The flight engineer grabbed the manual and it took them just a minute or so to figure out that there wasn’t any protocol for instant convertible . “After that we just flew the airplane ,we were so busy with decent, navigation, radio contact ,approach lines and air/ sea flight path coordination that we really didn’t have time to worry about what happened just what was happening in that instant”.

      Fly the airplane until it’s tied down in the hanger is a common phrase among tail dragger pilots .

      American Aviation designers are some of the best in the world and when the chips are down, it shows.

      What a plane and what a pilot! A-10s have always been one of my favorites.

      That was great! I was in that vicinity… I saw a few F-16s with holes and pieces missing…
