|After 10 years, OV-10 Bronco Association / FAC Museum / Veteran’s Memorial Air Park has new digs!|
By Terry Tabor
A message from OBA President Terry Tabor:All,Wanted to let you know how significant this day is to your OV-10 Bronco Association, the Forward Air Controllers Museum, and the Veteran’s Memorial Air Park in Fort Worth – WE HAVE OFFICIALLY MOVED!
Today we finally moved the last of our collection out of the Vintage Flying Museum which has been our home for 10 years. Specifically, we moved the OV-10 factory mock up (our first aircraft), the gray NAIL O-2 (Jerry’s Duck – our second aircraft), and the tail boom from one of the two prototype YOV-10’s. We are now located in our new facilities at the south end of Meacham Airport and hope to have the museum and air park re-established by sometime in September. This has been a monumental effort by the Fort Worth crew and I’m proud of all of them! We did the impossible in only six weeks after the Cowtown Warbird Roundup at the end of April. Many of the Nails and VMO-2 alumni were at that CWR and saw the museums prior to moving — you wouldn’t recognize the place now!We hope that many of you will visit us next year at the next CWR (in conjunction with the MCAA reunion here in May) or at the Forward Air Controller’s Association bi-annual reunion next October. Specific dates are still to be determined. In the meantime, here is our new address information:
