|The Bronco Demo Team’s OV-10 will be bringing
Poppies from Flanders Fields to venues and airshows all over Europe in 2017;
supporting a message of peace and reconciliation in remembrance of the sacrifice
by so many 100 years ago.
The Bronco Demo Team is based at Kortrijk-Wevelgem airport situated just
12 nm East from the Ypres salient. The airfield was first used during
World War I, initially by German fighter squadrons and later, during the
advance of the Allied Powers leading to the end of the conflict, by the
Royal Air Force.
As a commemoration of The Great War, the Bronco Demo Team has adorned
their OV-10 Bronco in a truly amazing new “Poppy” livery.
The Poppies and “LEST WE FORGET, 1914-18” graphics reflect
light differently when the aircraft moves, producing a different shine
and brightness at various angles. The effect is outright awesome and very
Our OV-10 Bronco will carry actual Poppy seeds to venues and airshows
in 2017, underlining the theme. The seed packets will be offered for sale
at the shows, with each bag individually marked with flight date and show
name. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to charity.
