A "Philly Hawg" taxies back into the ramp at SLN. The big dent located on the nose was caused by contact with a boom from a tanker.

I love this shot - gives a great perspective of the size of those engines compared with the fuselage. What a beast. I also love the pilot's relaxed pose "look Mom, no hands!". His gloves intrigue me a little - they remind me of gardening gloves!

OUCH! I'm glad that I wasn't the boom who put that dent there.

Worn and torn and scarred at only 28, the warthog in this amazing photo tells us that as funny as it may sound - we mature far better than the machines we build.

Looks like the nose isn't the only thing that needs repairing and painting.

Who cares, it always gets the job done. The military don't give a damn how it looks.
