How Air Force Pilots Fly The Controversial $19 Million A-10 Warthog
YouTube / Insider Business
The Warthog, also known as the A-10 Thunderbolt, is the main low-altitude close-air-support aircraft of the United States Air Force. It’s the only aircraft that’s specifically built to support ground forces.
The plane has the nickname ‘Warthog,’ mostly because of the guttural sound it produces and its ugly appearance. Personally, we don’t think the aircraft is ugly, in fact, it has a rather iconic shape. We’ve always loved the look and the sound of the plane.
This video walks us through how pilots are trained to fly this incredible plane, and we got to say, A10 pilots are absolutely incredible. Much respect to these folks! It’s also pretty cool to get an up close look on how the plane works. So underrated!
