From one of my favorite airplanes you get a front row seat what the A-10 pilots see on a training mission at Davis Monthan AFB. In the video you can see why the A-10 Warthog is one of the most lethal fighters in the US Air Force inventory.

"There is a lot of low-level flying (as low as 100 feet AGL), strafing runs with the GAU-8 Avenger, white-phosphorus rockets usage as well as taxi, take-off, pattern activity and landing.

Interestingly, you can even have a quick look at the aircraft kept in storage by the 309th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group (AMARG) at the “Boneyard” at Davis Monthan AFB, as the A-10C turns of base leg for final approach," according to the writer, David Cenciotti who wrote this article for the Aviationist.com.

I hope the A-10 continues to fly and support our troops on the ground. There is no other fighter of its kind in the world. The video was uploaded by KD SWAT. Photo by Kevin Hong/Sector K Media, LLC.
