A-10 Warthog
The A-10 Warthog formed the backbone of the USAF’s close ground support force. The A-10 is now competing with the F-16 and F-35 for this role. Even so, it continues to provide excellent service to the USAF. Existing in reduced numbers it still provides great support for the close ground support role.

The amazing A-10 Warthog designed around its 30 mm cannon with 1,350 rounds, plus up to 16,000 lbs. of mixed ordnance. This includes laser-guided bombs, rockets, CBUs and Maverick missiles on 11 external store stations.

The General Electric turbofans provided 9,065 lbs. of thrust each. The A-10 has great short field takeoff and landing capabilities. At maximum weight, it can take off with only 4.000 ft. of a runway and land within a very short distance of 2,000 ft.

Robert T. Smith received his flight training at an Aeronautical College in California. His flight training consisted of two separate flight training rides with "Robert L. Scott". Scott would later become his wingman on his first combat mission in China.

Smith finished his basic flight training at Randolph Field in Texas. His advanced combat flight training was at Brooks Field which was also in Texas. There he was a basic training instructor and earned a commission to Second Lieutenant.

Smith decided to join the American Volunteer Group with the Chinese Air Force". The fighter group he joined was the "Flying Tigers" which at that time were flying the Curtiss P-40s. This all was taking place at the same time that Pearl Harbor was under attacked.

Smith received his promotion to flight leader during World War II while flying with the 3rd. Pursuit Squadron. This Squadron was the "Hell's Angels" and he shot down 10 enemy combat fighter planes. He received two medals from the Chinese government.

The use of nose art made it easier to identify friendly aircraft. It was located on the front of the fuselage of a military aircraft and considered to be graffiti at that time.

The practice expressed the individuality of the combat pilots. It reminded them of their memories of home and what peacetime life was all about. It was also viewed as a type of emotional safeguard against the stresses of war. The possibility of not returning home grew greater with every mission.

The appeal of nose art was that it was not approved by the military. But the regulations against its widespread use wasn't enforced.

Flown by Maj. Richard I. Bong

Overshadowed by the P-47 Thunderbolt and the P-51 Mustang. The P-38 Lightning played a major role in air superiority for the United Staes in the Pacific theater.

The P-38 engaged in a variety of important and critical missions during WWII.

One of the most incredible and famous ones happened on April 28, 1943. A squadron of P-38 pilots pulled one of the most spectacular coups of World War II. Flying to the greatest range of their combat limits.

They shot down a Japanese Mitsubishi G4M1 bomber with Admiral Yamamoto Isoroku on board. Admiral Yamamoto Isoroku was commander in Chief of the Japanese Combined Fleet. He had planned the attack on Pearl Harbor.

This strike had a major moral buster for the United States and its Allies.

Richard Bong had 40 kills during World War II and became an America's Ace of aces. But in reality, Bong was not a good shot but he was able to make up for it by being a superb pilot with great flying skills.

Bong would fly his P-38 so close to enemy fighters and targets on the ground that it makes it impossible to miss. His ability to outmaneuver his enemy in a dogfight gave him the advantage he needed to assure a victory!
