  1. JAWS is an F-16 guy in his unit's engine shop. He knows his stuff. As he said, the jet you've shown in the pic isn't undergoing 'maintenance.' It's merely getting a quick check. Opening up the panels over the gun isn't a 'quick check.' that is only done during routine inspections during phase or when the gun breaks. Either way, the jet's explosives (weapons and cartridges in the pylons/bomb racks) are downloaded. A jet in a hangar, for obvious reasons, has no live ordnance loaded, which is why finding photos of A USAF JET depicted as such isn't likely to happen. The super Hornet pic you referenced is also only undergoing a quick check. the avionics panels along its nose are quickly opened and checked during the preflight and post flight, but the same rules apply--before it's towed into the ship's hangar bay, all explosive ordnance is downloaded.

  3. You should have gotten a confirmation right away. It didn't show up?
  4. Now taking pre-orders!! Expected ship date is 1 December, if not sooner. www.reidairpublishing.com $39.95
  5. All A-10 cockpits to date are pre-LASTE with the exception of the Black Box set. That is a late 90s post-LASTE A-10A. I'd like to see an A-10A+ and A-10C cockpit set. Looking forward to your offerings, Gary. Jake
  6. Try the sheet from Speed Hunter. It'll get you the crew name blocks, tail flash, black stenciling, and Wing/Squadron badges. Then use black spares for the WA and serials. Jake
