Roar and A-10 in same sentence does not get you a passing grade. I think the wings going through the air produces more dbs then the motors. Might also say that the pilot's cackling from inside the cockpit likely produced the first evidence of the approaching flight.
While I am on the line - where is the talk of the A-6E, Intruder. Named appropriately and one of the mightiest steeds in the sky. Have we all forgotten of that majestic beast, and of the brave airmen who flew and maintained them?

Thanks for the correction Doug and you are right, it was more of a wind sound than a roar.
Did not hear much of the engines even as they sped away.
As you can probably tell, I was never in the military.
So my knowledge is very limited.

Hats off to those that are serving and have served, to protect and defend this great country.

Going to look up and learn about the A-6E now.

The A6 Intruder was our primary attack platform on that same previously named med cruise. A couple squadrons of A7's made up our light attack aircraft.
I heard that a fully loaded A6 carried the same poundage of bombs as the old B17 did in WWII.

The Marines are still flying the EA6B which is the electronic counter measure attack varient but they are getting phased out with the EA-18 Growler. The EA6B carried 4 crewmen.

When we did flight Ops, my Tugs with their rear mounted GTC105's would start them all up (except the Harriers). The GTC105's had 2 settings for the compressed air used to start the aircraft, the low setting for all the attack aircraft (A6's, A7's and A4's and the high setting for the F4's. You did not want to confuse settings.....

re. Warthogs, they just can't kill that aircraft off....

And carrying around 4 liquid oxygen bottles per plane is a pain in the rump. Not to mention getting sprayed with it. Instant burning feeling on any exposed skin. Does really well as a stand in for carbonite freezing tests when carbonite was only available for Star Wars. After freezing a couple of lizards, you learn not to drop them afterwards. They tend to shatter into tiny pieces that you can't glue back together.

Did you ever see or hear of anyone having to clear those communication tubes in those A6's? I knew better wink
