For those who can’t get enough of the A-10 Thunderbolt II, a documentary about the close-air support jet has surfaced allegedly after nearly four years of being kept off the net.

Despite the popular Facebook group “Air Force amn/nco/snco” filing a Freedom of Information Act request to get the footage, the Air Force hasn’t officially released the video. But chronicle of CAS has recently started popping up on YouTube and Facebook pages, creating a flurry of “BRRRRRT!” among Warthog fans.

After years of threatening to cut funding for the A-10 program — as a way to focus on potential alternatives, such as the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter — the Air Force says it will keep the beloved Warthog “indefinitely.”
