You haven't seen a battery of 105s, have you?

After 45 years at the Bae Warton site,

Hoskins finally got his retirement present from the lads...they raided the parts bin

Hoskins explained he removed all the parts one bit at a time in his empty lunch box..

A recently declassified photo shows why the DoD has indefinitely postponed the OA-X program.

Back to the drawing board for the M7 Aerospace's proposed A-10D after blowback from the uprated cannon causes 'minor airframe integrity issues' during ground testing.

The finer nuances in the English notes of the Chief Engineer were lost to the design team:
We will pull the JATO rockets forward and put the flamethrower on the back burner.

SLXO,
May I ask:
Was that the same reason as why the Helicopter Armed Overwatch project (HOAx) never came off the ground?

Thinks it's a bit of overkill? All it was was one Pitot tube blocked on one aircraft in five years.
