Airman does something awesomely stupid with a A-10 main cannon.

I very much believe that I would not do this to the main cannon of a Warthog.

Mostly because I feel that one of the basic rules for having a long and happy life is: Never put your head in front of the main 30mm cannon of the A-10 Thunderbolt. Not unless you want to risk seeing whether you can recreate the plot of “Roland The Headless Thompson Gunner” in real life. Spoiler Warning: …no, you can’t.

  1. To be fair, those cannons don’t fire unless someone is holding the trigger down and they are certainly disabled and disarmed when they are being worked on.
    And I have a feeling that the Airman got a Talking To from higher-ups once they stopped giggling after watching it.

  2. Looks to me like the A-10 can now be classified as a musical instrument, and be lawfully transferred to the Army and Marines.
