Flypast’s 12/2001 issue mentions the German Wing OBA’s B-model Broncos twice (and has a picture) on pages 13 and 16. It was slightly unclear in the way it was reported, but as of this date, the GWOBA’s Broncos are NOT planned to be operated in coordination with the French OV-10B which has been touring the European airshow circuit for a couple of years now. It seems likely, however, that there could be at least a few times when THREE OV-10Bs – the French plane and the two GWOBA ships – will be in attendance at the same show. For more information on these planes and the GWOBA, see our GWOBA pages.
