GUTHRIE, Oklahoma –

The Air Force A-10 Thunderbolt II, better known as the Warthog, has earned a reputation for toughness over the years.

Now, one of the military’s flying guns has landed in the Sooner state to take on a new mission – this one inside Oklahoma storms.

Its mission is to make forecasts more accurate and get lifesaving warnings out sooner.

Well, that’s an interesting mission. The rule of thumb is to never ever knowingly enter a thunderstorm. I’m curious as to who will operate the aircraft.
