Comments: Sunday Aircraft Cheesecake (A-10 Thunderbolt a/k/a "Warthog")

Sweet! One of my favorite planes, even if it was designed to kill my tank.

A ? re: aircraft cheesecake because I'm too lazy to go searching through the archives: have you ever done a series on the gliders used in the D-Day landing?

Amazing stuff they achieved with those.

Kathy, I haven't featured any of those gliders yet, but that's a good idea.

Last year, for the 60th Anniversary, I "liveblogged" the D-Day landings, meaning I went through and constructed a timeline of what happened and when it happened and posted it at the exact time. Pretty dorky, I know, but it was informative. I learned more about D-Day than I had ever thought possible. I honestly had not heard anything about the gliders before I did that post, and I thought they were fascinating. Particularly since they were constructed of wood and wrapped in canvas, which was painted with camo. Just amazing stuff.
