  The OV-10 was built by North American Rockwell and 157 were delivered to the USAF beginning in 1968. It arrived in Southeast Asia the same year and soon proved a rugged and reliable Forward Air Control (FAC) aircraft. Powered by two turboprop engines, the highly maneuverable Bronco featured ejection seats, five radios, a large cargo compartment and superb cockpit visibility. Four light machine guns and five weapons stations capable of delivering a variety of ordnance gave the OV-10 a limited attack capability. The 230 gallon external centerline fuel tank provided a range of over 1,000 miles and maximum flight duration of up to six hours. Normally flown by a single FAC, the rear seat was often occupied by an observer, interpreter, or Pave Nail operator on those aircraft equipped with laser designating equipment. During the SEA war, all OV-10 FAC training was conducted at Hurlburt Field. The Air Force retired the OV-10 in September 1991. This aircraft was dedicate in the Air Park on 23 Sep 2000.
