Foreigner's Jukebox Hero! I also had that model of the A-10, about the same year he was talking about. Monogram or Revell, can't remember now.

Great little doc! Enjoyed that.

The only time I think i will ever thank congress...
U.S. lawmakers again rejected the Air Force’s proposal to retire the A-10 Thunderbolt II attack aircraft, calling the decision “misguided.”

Congress on Tuesday agreed to a sweeping $612 billion defense bill, called the Fiscal 2016 National Defense Authorization Act, which sets policy goals and spending targets for the fiscal year beginning Oct. 1.

A fact-sheet distributed by the House Armed Services Committee, headed by Rep. William “Mac” Thornberry, a Republican from Texas, references the Air Force’s controversial proposal to divest its fleet of Warthogs, some of which are flying missions in the Middle East as part of Operation Inherent Resolve to target militants affiliated with the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, or ISIS.

“Rigorous oversight, endorsements from Soldiers and Marines about the protection only the A-10 can provide, and repeated deployments in support of OIR have persuaded many Members from both parties that the budget-driven decision to retire the A-10 is misguided,” the document states.

You guys will shoot me for this but..

If no soldiers were deployed then the A-10 wouldn't be such a necessity. Then the soldiers would be safe and the budget guys are saving even more money than cutting the A-10 alone ;)

Not that I stand by that as an argument but it seems like nobody even considers it.
