The Ultimate Pig Pen

Posted by borg on September 10, 2008

On October 15th, Salina, Kansas is going to be invaded by 17 four-ship formations from the US Air Force A-10 Warthog community. Almost every active duty, guard, and reserve A-10 unit in the world will be there to compete in the most awesome bombing and gunnery pissing contest to be held yet. These gunpowder spending extravaganzas are where Hawg drivers get together once every two years to exchange ideas, lies and memories while competing in several different categories involving all of the major combat roles expected of the mighty enemy shredder. There’s also an ample chance to eat world class beef, play a shit-load of CRUD, and, this year, listen to the ballads of Dick Jonas after the awards banquet. These folks have a website: which contains most of the details of their event.
One very special event is a tribute to all of the lost Hawg drivers of the past, complete with Taps, bagpipes and the reading of every name in reverence. We all do a shot of Weed at the end as we watch the missing man formation of Hawgs fly by. Guaranteed to have no dry eyes in the area.
I’m still flying the mighty Hawg and still loving every minute of it. I plan on being there with the rest of the FU staff and although some events are not open to the public, there will be a static display area and we’ll be selling FU merchandise as a proud sponsor of this camaraderie building, kickass gathering of warriors. If you happen to be in Salina or around the area, drop on by and say hello and go home with a part of your continuing FU education completed.
