Warplane Episode 102

Book: Warplane - How the Military Reformers Birthed the A-10 Warthog

Buckle up for a jaunt through the skies with the dynamic duo Fig & RePete, known to the world as “Co-Horsts,” as they prepare to take you on a slightly less than ordinary flight with Professor Hal Sundt. He’s not just any guest; he’s the mind behind “Warplane: How the Military Reformers Birthed the A-10 Warthog,” and he’s about to drop some knowledge bombs about Pierre Sprey, the visionary behind the A-10 Warthog. Imagine, if you will, a man so devoted to the safety of ground troops that he conjured up an aircraft so robust, it’s practically a superhero of the skies, safeguarding lives for over five decades.

This episode isn’t just a history lesson; it’s an adventure that zigzags from the drawing boards where the A-10 was born to the heartfelt tributes to Mr. Sprey himself. Expect a journey filled with twists and turns, including a wild ride on an A-10 simulator that’s as close to flying as you can get without actually leaving the ground, and tank tests that seem to leap straight out of a movie scene.

So, if you’re in the mood for something that tickles your funny bone while enlightening you on the legendary A-10 Warthog and the remarkable people who brought it to life, Episode 102 is your ticket.
