it`s a weekend so I wasn`t too surprised to hear some A-10`s flying over, I figured it was the national guard weekend to fly,there`s normally just 2 of them the first 2 flew by and as the sound of their engines was dying out we heard the engines getting louder agin so I told my wife, they are coming back to make that circle, but she said NO, come out here, ( I was in the garage) I came out and that`s when I saw the rest of them following the first 2.
magnificent aircraft, just the sound alone makes you proud to be an American.

2 in the front, than a row of 3 then 2 more and then a single one at the back and they didn`t fly around in circles for an hour like they normally do they came in over the bay flying from west to east and continued due east and didn`t return. no circles this weekend, they must be doing some serious training this weekend.i wonder what they are training for?

What's interesting is that they were flying east.

yeah, I found that unusual also, they usually come from the north, fly circles for awhile over the island and then head back north. today they came from the west heading east and kept going east, the only thing east of here is the atlantic ocean,there aren`t any airfields east of here military or otherwise. I`m pretty sure an A-10 doesn`t can`t fly across the atlantic ocean.

Sure they can. They have IFR capability so there is no reason they can't meet up with a tanker on the coast and cross.

There has been a couple at the South Bend IN airport last week but don't know if they are still there or just a stopover.

Not as loud as the B-1. But I bet they are pretty loud.

They still deploy to Europe every so often. They were there recently. They did a road exercise in Estonia while there.

When I was stationed in the Azores in 87-88, we'd get flights of A-10s transiting back and forth from Europe. It's a long haul, but they can and do cross the Atlantic.
