Gotta Love The Hog

Landings.com put up an A-10 article with a couple of pictures showing battle damage from Iraq on one airframe.

That isn't event the best case of battle damage survival in the Hog to date.

There was video of one landing back at base during the first gulf war that was much better.

And then there was that one of Yugoslavia that got the engine blown off by a SAM. Then some russian kids got several shots from different angles and built a website claiming that NATO lost 3 or 4 of the aircraft.
