    The Herky Bird. One of my favorite planes. Does everything from trash runs to Spectre gunship.

    I am amazed at how long some of our military aircraft have been around (and how long we intend to keep them flying). The C 130 and B 52 are probably the best examples of this (I think there have been stories about B52 pilots whose fathers and grandfathers were B52 pilots). The last I heard was that there will be B52 s in service until sometime around 2030, or around 75 years from its roll out.

    I hope that they keep the A-10 flying for a while longer. :cool:
