North American Rockwell OV-10B Bronco (G-ONAA / 99+18) from the OV-10B Bronco Demo Team
at the Royal Netherlands Air Force Open Days 2014, Gilze-Rijen (the Netherlands)
The Bronco Demo Team was created in 2010 by a group of OV-10 Bronco enthousiasts, with the main goal to present the Bronco in its natural environment; flying through the sky. After a very successful 2011 airshow season we will again be visiting multiple airshows and aviation events with static and/or flying displays. Based at Kortrijk-Wevelgem airport in Belgium, they are centrally located in the hearth of Europe. Bronco 99+18, civil registered as G-ONAA (dedicated to the aircraft manufacturer, GO North American Aviation), successfully completed its maiden flight on Saturday 26 May 2012 at Schwenningen-am-Neckar Airfield in Germany. The Bronco had been on static display at the International Aviation Museum - Manfred Pflumm since 1991. A large part of the restoration work was done at the museum location in Schwenningen before the aircraft was flown over to Manston, UK for further restoration work. With her restoration complete - after receiving a fresh coat of paint - the home coming flight was on Sunday morning 2 March 2014. Now ready for the upcoming airshow seasons.
