The U.S. Air Force A-10 Thunderbolt II AKA “Warthog” has become one of the most-recognized and beloved warplanes since it started flying in the 1970s. We’ve been hearing about its impending retirement—and the reason many in the armed services community are against that—for ages, but proposed legislation could keep it…
La Fuerza Aérea de los Estados Unidos planea hacer otro gran cambio a sus filas: reemplazar el mítico A-10 Thunderbolt II después de casi 40 años de servicio, por un avión que sea tanto más pequeño como más barato, pero que también esté mucho mejor armado.
Here’s a photo of a US Air Force KC-135 Stratotanker refueling an A-10 Thunderbolt II over the clouds. The perfect angle of the picture and the lovely nose art of the aircraft makes the fighter jet look like a flying shark machine that has a machine gun as its mouth and scars on its battered nose. It’s such a cool…
Here’s a video from inside the A-10 Thunderbolt as it flies through Arizona. The perspective is really cool because you get to see how the world looks from inside the aircraft and see things flip and turn sideways too. It also totally looks like it’s flying over Mars or something.
Aerial refuelling photos are always awesome. But this one, taken right after two of America’s best ground attack jets were topped up, easily beats all the similar photos I’ve ever seen.
This video contains one of the most terrifying human-produced sounds you can hear in the planet: The screaming noise from hell of an A-10 Warthog's GAU-8 Avenger gatling gun. Some of the very few who were on its reticle and survived say its banshee scream was the worst thing they have ever heard.
It must be the combination of the steel grey palette, the black accents, and their patches and rivets, but these two A-10s look especially cool and futuristic to me in this photo. Like they can be piloted by this guy:
It looks like rumors of a new BlackBerry handset, the Z30 (once referred to as the A10), could carry some weight: this hands-on video purports to show off the new device, and it seems convincing.
BlackBerry's rumored big shiny new A10 has cropped up in a series of leaked high-res images and it looks... actually kinda nice.
Ayer lo vimos en vídeo, pero ahora ya tenemos una lista casi completa de especificaciones del que podría ser el nuevo smartphone estrella de BlackBerry en otoño. Se trata del BlackBerry A10 y sería muy similar al Z10, pero de mayor tamaño: pantalla OLED de 5 pulgadas (1280×720 píxeles, no, nada de Full HD) y batería…
While me and you and everyone we know weren't paying attention, BlackBerry invented a nice big shiny new phone, the A10. It's definitely different! And at this point, that might be just what BlackBerry needs.
Looks like BlackBerry’s might be interested in getting in on the enormo-phone scene, with the first leaked image of a phone destined to be known as the A10 seemingly confirming the existence of a 5-inch model—that could upgrade the Z10 with curvier lines and a newer version of BB’s mobile software.
Bad news: an A-10 Warthog crashed while on a training run in Germany. Good news: the pilot is okay! Surprising news: that pile of junk up there used to be a $12 million, 25,000 pound jet. [via Danger Room]
In case you had any doubts about where the war in Libya is going, the Pentagon has admitted today that two new weapons are now part of the coalition forces: The A-10 Warthog and the AC-130 Spectre.
Not everything was about the stunning A-10 Warthog at last week's Top Gun 2008 competition, the largest R/C event in the world. 10,000 people watched the 120 invitation-only R/C airplanes competition—which included everything from from World War I Fokker fighters to WW2's Mustangs and Lightnings to Vietnam War's…
Here's the 1:5 scale A-10 Warthog remote control model in some video action at Top Gun 2008, in Lakeland, FL.—the biggest remote controlled airplane competition in the world. And to match it, a real A-10 appeared on the scene, taking off from a parallel runway. We interviewed Mike Selby, one of the model creators, and…
Putting five point-and-shoot cameras through various tests, Digital Camera Info tried to determine which one presented the best image stabilization for your money. The result was surprising.
Here's another couple of cameras shown off at CES. Pentax had its compact Optio A10 with 8 megapixels and a 1.8-inch CCD with its own "shake reduction" technology. Whether any of these motion-stopping technologies work is still a mystery, but I guess it's good to have it in there just in case. Though if your hands…
