Yeah there's nothing but fields of corn or beans around here. There's only two places that I can think of that they would be from and one is Rickenbacker Airport out of Columbus or Wright Patterson air force in Dayton. They are a hours drive but about 10 minute flying distance from here.

Well what got me was the way they would dive down then quickly gain altitude. They kept circling around in the same general area. They was mocking each others moves. It probably was a training session of some sort but the way they would skim the trees made me a tiny bit nervous. I think they did that for about 15 minutes.

I'll have to keep my eyes open for anything in reference to that. I know someone that is asking around to see if they might have heard anything also.

Very much looked like a strafing run in that second video after he pans to the left. Thanks for linking this. Gives me chills all over again.



That's just it...
You're hit before you hear the gun fire...
It's a monster.
When I watch these strafing vids...
I feel like a character in the Godzilla films....
" oh please don't hurt me monster in the sky!"
Hid under rocks!

Spooky!

The VFW flyby is most logical if no airshows were around there. They were performing mock strafing attacks and a few minimum radius combat turns but its a show, enjoy.

You only have something to worry about if you happen to be near a Soviet T-72

Oh thanks...
Thanks to the OP...
I enjoyed this video!


Oh no no no... a T-72 being a tank... vs the tank killer A-10....
Then again as you phrased it. If I'm next to the t-72...
Then that means we lost....
Time to embrace the VODKA!

And.. the OP didn't answer if there was a VFW in the middle of a bean corn field just yet...
Have to admit...
If I was a pilot..
I'd buzz my moms house.. or an old flame...

That was another thought I had as alien suggested...

Yes..
The A-10...
Gotta admit.
She's my favorite..

Sad she's leaving...

Note: when I refer to a bad a$$ of a bird.... as a she..
Mom... she was a bad a$$...
She never failed me...
Took 3 jobs to feed,clothe & shelter me...
The A-10 did her part and so much more....


Now I'm gonna cry!

There are A-10s at Wright Patterson. They do fuel testing, and upgrades there.

OK!...
Thought you would arrive sooner or later.. this thread has been up all day...

But why over greenfield...
There is lots of space around that area.. ( vast wooded area )
Enough to not frighten a small town...

Granted though...
Man the OP saw and filmed an A-10 that is leaving service.
I would be so lucky to see it fly as it would.... not on static display...

Social club.. for veterans of foreign wars..

And was that from this morning or another day not of 9/11

The Air Force Fuel Laboratory is there. They're developing biofuels and testing them on various aircraft in various flight envelopes. The A-10 is also being upgraded to the C standard.

What!
So does this mean the F-35 is messing up and the A-10 has more life left?

Though I must admit...
This is getting incredibly spendy on both air frames..
But lucky for me.. the A-10 is a masterpiece..

No, the C standard was begun several years ago, before Sequestration. It's mostly done, but they had already paid for a certain number of upgrades to them, so they're completing them.

Oh...
Wow..
Thanks for more schooling... that's not an insult

Trying to figure out why so many pilots couldn't explain.. why we had an F-15 c here at beaver heritage museum..
If that's
What you're going with..
Note..
Our F-15 has no engines for legal reasons...

The F-15C had quite a few retired for longeron issues. They were too thin and too expensive to repair.
