The problem...

Part of the solution...

Air Frame: Capt. Andrew Glowa, lead, and Capt. William Piepenbring, both with the 74th Fighter Squadron out of Moody AFB, Ga., launch flares from two A-10C Thunderbolt II over the skies of southern Georgia, Aug. 18, 2014. (Air Force photo by SSgt. Jamal D. Sutter)

The full-scale image is impressive, which is why I've included two shots.  The second is a partial full-scale screen shot (which Blogger may or may not down-size), which you can find here

Get Some!


  1. Hmm, I thought those flares were for use against manpads, and those guys are too high for that. I smell a photo-op :-)

    1. Photo op indeed. I don't think there's usually a chase plane with a photographer in it on CAS missions.

  2. I have some psyop music for when these Warthogs go in hot; (After all, "It's a sick, sick world, what can I say...")
    Blast this at maximum and take over the radio waves around Isis!

    1. Cool, Darryl! You're obviously very well-versed (heh) in yer Ramones. I wouldn't have thought of that tune; I'd have gone with something more conventional, like "Ride of the Valkyries." But those of us of a certain age know it's been done before.


Just be polite... that's all I ask.
