Bronco back in trim
A workhorse of Australian Forward Air Controllers in Vietnam has been lovingly restored at the Memorial.
During the Vietnam War, 36 Australian fighter pilots flew the OV-10A Bronco as Forward Air Controllers in close air support missions jointly with the United States Air Force. Ken Semmler was one of the pilots, and one of the aircraft he flew, 67-14639, is now part of the National Collection at the Australian War Memorial.
This article by Claire Hunter reveals the extraordinary skill and labour that have been put into finding and restoring this versatile machine, and some of the stories from those who flew it.
