A buddy who is a retired test pilot sent me a 16 mm magnetic reel of test/demo footage of the A-10 Thunderbolt. The film was water damaged and had no sound left . I had been reviewing the footage for a couple of days. I happen to be driving down the road and hear Robert Plants Silver Rider , the lyrics instantly matched up to the video in my head. Song written by Zak Sally, Mimi Parker, Alan Sparhawk Sung by Robert Plant.
