Who says A-10's can't land on roads?

Found this recently where some A-10's were landing on a highway in Michigan as part of a training exercise.

They call it THUNDER LZ!  Enjoy!

 A-10 Thunderbolt IIs from both Selfridge Air National Guard Base, Michigan and Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Arizona and C-146A Wolfhounds from Hurlburt Field, Florida participated in a training event where they landed and departed from Michigan Highway 32. The highway landings are a part of Exercise Northern Strike 21-2 and marked the first time in U.S. history that a modern military aircraft landed on a U.S. public highway designed only for automobiles.


I assume they walked the roadway first for any FOD.  
Wouldn't want some road-kill getting sucked into the engines!
Thanks and stay safe!
