When I was in tech school, we all filed into the base theater for our monthly
"Warrior Day" propaganda film, part of which was an ultra-slow motion
of an A-10 using its Vulcan on a garbage truck. One of the coolest things I've
ever seen. There's a thing in "The Day The Earth Stood Still", where
a semi gets eaten by the "swarm". It was a lot like that. It may not
be the most advanced plane we ever put in service, but it's still my favorite.

While up in the Idaho mountains dirt biking East of Boise a few years ago, our
camp was treated to a thoroughly over the top display of this awesome aircraft
on manouvers from the nearby Mountain Home AFB or Boise Idaho ANG.
A half dozen of these flew right over the top of us and circled the
mountainside. The sound was deafening,and they were flying so low that we could
see the pilots. Head on, and coming right at us, the view was very imposing to
say the least.
They must've seen us jumping up and down cheering like bastards, and they
loitered over the camp for a while pulling some steep banking turns as we
scrambled for our cameras.
