A-10 Warthog model

I’ve always liked the A-10 Warthog, although the Air Force strongly resisted building it. (Brief history here.) The Air Force really does not like flying ground-support missions. The Air Force is all about strategic bombing—at least the power in the Air Force lies with those guys. But the A-10 was built and it turned in a great performance. Now a 10-foot 1:5 scale model has been made, which flies by radio control. Photos here, and article here.
