What if some A-10s the USAF says it so desperately wants to get rid of somehow “escaped” from the boneyard at DM AFB and followed some sort of migration pattern to, oh say, Ukraine? They spent so much time early in their lives in Germany that they tried to fly home but got blown off course by some mysterious north winds. Hey, it could happen!! Then they reverted to their natural habit of shooting tanks and strafing convoys. They US government would have to promise to put metal bands on their main gear legs to track their movements from then on.

I certainly can't see them complaining. 8)

Russia might sulk a fair bit, though. ;D

Yeah! I can't see this one either.  This might sound like a silly question, but how do you open it in a new page Jeff ?  OK ignore that, I right clicked it and then used the open image option and then I could see it.
