Warbird Park, located at the entrance of the former Myrtle Beach Air Force Base, celebrates the history of the men and women who served our country. You can get up close and personal with the USAF A-10 Warthog.
The Warthog was bound for the aircraft graveyard until it’s performance in Desert Storm was praised by ground troops. It’s “low and slow” approach provided much needed cover and protection for these infantry troops. A tough plane to shoot down, the A-10 was built to take hits with it’s engine mounted in the center of the aircraft. It fired 30mm Gatling type cannon rounds at a rate of just over 1 round per second.
