The OV-10 Bronco Association and the Forward Air Controllers Museums would like to thank all the Pop-A-Smoke members who came out to see what we had to offer at the CWR. This was our first shot at planning and hosting and event of this magnitude.
We hope everyone had a great time looking at the current Military aircraft from all of the services as well as some of the civilian owned aircraft from earlier days. I also hope everyone took time to talk to the air crews from the helicopters and fixed wing aircraft and thank them for their service. Many have already served in SWA or will be in the future - probably more than once. You also got to see a USCG Daulphin that was fully engaged in the Hurricane operations. Their unit, from Mobile, has been credited with over 4700 rescues during that time period.
Friday morning I thought I was back at Marble Mountain with the Broncos, Dogs, Frogs, Cobras and Huey in place on the LZ.
