it's too bad they don't fly out of Syracuse anymore. used to love watching them there. of course, I didn't mind watching the F-16's either, once they switched over.

well, you don't have to go quite that far. they still fly them out of Massachusetts and just outside Baltimore, Maryland. there's probably others of course, but those are two that I know, cause I've been there. LOL.

A few years ago, the Pennsylvania ANG flew A10's. One Sunday morning, two of those A10's flew into the local FBO at Buffalo Intl. so the pilots could attend a football game between the Bills and the Eagles.

The A10's, parked next to GA aircraft, was an interesting contrast.

This A10 is probably government surplus and has found a new life for itself.

Jeanskydive,

Beautiful effort on your A10

Hi Jean,
really nice work on this A-10 !

I will follow your thread because this is one of my projects...mine is little smaller ( wingspan 176 cm ) and it comes from a home made plane by a friend of mine ( 20 years ago ) previously designed for 2 x .25ci engines with prop.
I would like to install 2 x 90mm EDF from HobbyKing.

I have the fiberglass fuse and plans for all the rest.
