In the American Air Hall at Duxford

 

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.

Great composition and treatment Les
Les Auld: Thanks Zed smile
That gatling gun looks intimidating, looks like an interesting place to visit.
Les Auld: Well worth a visit Nigel, thanks for the comment.
I like this Les, it is years since I last went to Duxford, I was only about 10 miles from there until I moved away in 1971.
Les Auld: It is a great place to visit Brian, thanks for the comment.
