the last thing you'd never hear:

the reason the "grunting" noise of the A-10 gatling gun comes so much later than the visual of the bullets hitting the ground is because the bullets are flying at supersonic speeds, so by the time the sound of the guns reaches you, you're already dead and can't hear it.

I watched one of these things doing strafing drills in Grayling, MI. It really does sound like a giant fart in the sky when it fires that gun on the front.

fedex: No shit? I was thinking time travel. Glad you set me straight there.

I only post this out of nostalgia because the A-10s were stationed at Davis-Monthan AFB near Tucson where I grew up and were a daily sight flying around town.

misterbuns
No way?

I lived on Davis Monthan when I was a kid #airforcebrat

Damn. You guys are experts in your respective fields!

Yeah, if you had one level off right at you like in the above video, you might see the nose erupt in smoke, but all you might hear are the rounds hitting the ground at your feet a split second before your death, depending on how true their aim was:

All bullets travel faster than the speed of sound, normal rifle bullets 3 times its speed or so.

"Breath of Allah"

because these bullets are 11.4 inches (290 mm) in length and weigh 1.53 pounds (0.69 kg) and they go 3,450 ft/s and are made of depleted uranium, thats why.

A-10s are the most badass plane we've got. Discuss.
Ursa_minor
Agreed. Can't believe they are trying to mothball them, and have been since they were new. Nothing else like them, not even the Frogfoot.

BorrowedSolution
They're like angels made flesh.

Jet Bin Fever
Greg Gates certainly thinks so.

I doubt anyone knows what I'm talking about. I spent too much time in Arcades as a youth. Oh well.

AREA 88!!!

... or "UN Squadron", if you wanna be a round-eye.

Mister Yuck
The A-10 wasn't made by Boeing, Northrup Grumman, or Lockheed Martin. And that's why they're trying to mothball it.

When enemies give your weapon a nickname that references God, Satan, or Hell, that's a good weapon you've got there.
