    Did anyone else just torn completely sideways in their office chair, or was it just me?

    I wasn't complaining, but I just got the mental image of what someone would have thought if they walked in.

    No worries, you have never struck me as a complainer.

    Jerry, I understand the protection of the cockpit, engine, and linkage (?) to the rudder but what is the blotted out vertical section? Is it protection or obscured for another reason? It's on the tail of the plane on the far left as well.
    It took me a second to realize the wings were removed. Lol

    Good eye.
    They sealed up the strip lights. I got to be involved in that TCTO, time compliance technical order in the early - mid 90’s
    The wings may have been canned to another A-10 that needed them. Boeing led a re wing project to keep the fleet up.
