This past Monday, seeing as the theme of the ATC Schedule was military, I went up in some military aircraft. I know, wierd. My first flight was patterns in an F-16 so that @Captain_Cign wouldn’t be lonely at Hill AFB. The second flight was in an A-10, which, to my surprise, is a very photogenic! I then saw that @Tyler_Shelton (I know, I tagged a staff member, I’m so crazy) was making his way from Arizona to Idaho in an A10. I figured, formation shots would be nice photos. So I shot Tyler a PM, got the go ahead, and so began the tale. As it turns out, I am HORRIBLE at flying the A-10. Thankfully, @MJP_27 had the same idea as me, so I was able to steal a replay from him to get these photos. Most of these are from his replay file. So thank you, thank you, thank you, Mason. These photos wouldn’t be here without you 🙏. Well, on to the photos.
Also, I’m so surprised that I managed to get another S&V topic out the day after another one.
Aircraft: F-16C, A-10
Route: KHIF - KHIF, KHIF - KBOI
Starting us off is me doing an ultra low pass at Hill AFB
The previous low pass, but from a different angle. I actually managed to get 0 feet AGL without touching the ground 😎
Starting out the Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrtttttt
is a shot of Mason and Tyler
More OK-HAI and N1TJ, because I crashed
I think this is Tyler, I honestly have no clue
Since I crashed again, here’s another pic of the actually skilled pilots
A-10 belly shot
I’m gonna say that one of these hogs is me, so that I can be in at least one photo
Angry hog with the brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrttttt machine
The pilots (plus me) parked on the ramp after doing some flying (crashing for me), but mainly some
Well, that’s all, I hope you enjoyed the photos! Let me know if you had a favorite!
