an aircraft i would like to have flown in real world 

sim games with were fun though 

 

Weren't the Americans retiring the A-10? I know the Russians about the same time were upgrading their Grach SU-25s (A-10 equivalent). Did they know something the Yanks didn't?

no idea, i was at work and heard it overhead, one of my colleagues said 'that was a funny sounding plane' and i said it sounded like an A-10 tankbuster. don't know if it was but it sounded like one.

They should have built the Severn barrage many years ago. The latest feasibility study cost what it would have cost originally to build!

 

Glad that’s not gone ahead, estuary mud flats are a critical habitat for many bird species and under massive threat globally already.  There are better solutions out there that don’t devastate such habitats 🙁
