Singapore Airshow 2010 – USAF A10


USAF A10, originally uploaded by anthonli.

One of the famous aircraft in fighter jet history. I remembered playing a combat flight simulator game called “A10: Tank Killer” when I was young.

Here’s one, making a turn in the sky. Notice the dark spot on the undercarriage, it is supposed to resemble the cockpit, used to confuse the enemy. Also notice the short, but broad wings, designed to maximise lift, so that less distance is needed for take-off.

This aircraft has tiger stripes on its rudders, perfect for the year of the Tiger, but I still miss the shark jaws.
