Oh well, when I first found out it was already "old news" as well... :wink:

But the title of this thread offers scope
for replies about possible other developments regarding the re-use of OV-10 Bronco's in the present day. :wink:

How many Bronco's are still stored at AMARC :?:

The Colombian Bronco's are not returning to the US. Besides that... they are finnished their structural life. The only nation left flying their last OV-10A and OV-10C (ex RThaiAF) are the Philippines. I have no idea how many Bronco's are left at AMARG?

Cheers.

I read in Air Force Magazine that the "experiment" is over. Like so many good ideas, it's all about the money. Can't seem to attach the article in pdf or jpeg (Not allowed). So if interested in the wording of the article, send me your email address if you like and I'll send back

As far as I read, it is mostly because it is not American. This is the area where the new Cessna and the converted Grumman Cropduster may excel.

It is less sexy though, and that prooved to be a big showstopper in de past.
