    The 174th TFW of the NY ANG flew A-10s. They were taken away in the late '80s and replaced with F-16s. Now the F-16s have been replaced by Reaper drones which can't legally fly in Syracuse because it's a civilian airport. The drones are always on deployment anyway, but they can't even train with them here.

    In the beginning, the universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry, and is generally considered to have been a bad move. -- Douglas Adams, The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy
