At the 54 second mark if you look under the Hun you can see my Air National Guard base and some of our A-10s.

I get to see Dean Cutshall's Hun fly about every month or so when the weather is nice. He keeps her at our airport across the field from us. His two Crew Chiefs (long retired from the Air Guard) used to work the Huns when they were at my base before we had F-4Cs, F-4Es, F-16C/Ds and now A-10s.

great video, getting to relive those memories. I would love to go aboard my old unit, the Woodrush and set some buoys or break ice again, but she was sold to Ghana many years ago.
