A very formidable warbird indeed.
That offset nose gear bothers my senses, but, I'm glad they didn't dump these remarkable fighting aircraft!

Great picture angle & photo.
All A-10 photos will get 5 stars from me even if they were blurry!

Nice shot and please keep 'em coming.
These are some of the most effective aircraft at what they do and were made for combat and readiness, the engines can be mounted on either side for quick turnaround if needed. I'll never understand why so many of the brass over time have wanted rid of these, I think we should keep them around as long as possible.
The offset nose gear makes room for one heck of a cannon!! Function over style!!

User3956, I think we all can figure out why some higher-ups are always looking to replace extremely dependable, efficient and effective fighting machines. Someone somewhere always has something to sell the military that's a "better" tool, NOT... I'm not sure I've ever heard someone that's been in ground combat in the last 40-years say "yeah, I think it would be a good idea if we get rid of the A-10"

This is the very last thing many Taliban fighters saw during their earthly sojourn.

silverio califano The offset nose gear is to allow the gun to be on the centerline of the aircraft.
