    Warthog accident in Estonia

    An A-10C Thunderbolt II aircraft assigned to the 104th Fighter Squadron, Maryland Air National Guard, involved in training operations off Estonia's Jagala-Karavete highway on Thursday made contact with an object on the pre-coordinated training area at roughly 3:15 p.m, as a result of which the highway will remain closed until Friday morning.

    The accident happened in the final stage of the exercise when one aircraft hit a highway barrier. No individuals on the ground nor the pilot were injured.

    The incident is currently under investigation.

    He got the sign AND the barriers marking the "threshold". Somebody's getting a new callsign at the next roll call...

    Unless there was a displaced threshold, seems to me he nailed it on brick one...10/10. We may or may not have done something similar a couple times deployed...
