The American Air Museum Hall at the Imperial War Museum, Duxford, has more historic American warbirds than anywhere else outside the USA. Packed into the immense building the aircraft ranging from massive B52 to a diminutive SPAD S13 of the First World War, many of them hanging from wires.
The aircraft shown here is the Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II, also known as the Warthog, designed to fly low across the battlefield to knock out enemy armour and artillery. It carries one of the most powerful guns to be carried, a severn barrelled gatling gun and it can also carry a wide range of ordinance under the wings. A fearsome battlefield beast indeed.
