One of the pair of Broncos initially acquired in 1999 from the Luftwaffe
Technical School in Fassberg, “99+26” arrived at Duxford in
England on September 13, 2001 with tail number G-BZGL. After restoration
work, which involved a full overhaul of all major systems, this Bronco
was ferried to our home base in Wevelgem in November 2015.
The second Bronco of the pair from the Luftwaffe Technical School in
Fassberg had been flown to Duxford as G-BZGK for restoration in October
A milestone was reached when OV-10B "99+32” made its maiden
post restoration flight on July 11th, 2007 at Duxford. A first public
appearance was made during the Charity Flying Day at RNAS Yeovilton in
2008 and since then Bronco "99+32" appeared at many airshows
and events all over Europe. Unfortunately Bronco 99+32 was written-off
in an aircraft accident at Kemble Airport on July 10th, 2012.
A third Bronco for Bronco Demo Team was added in 2006, this airplane
had been on static display at the International Aviation Museum - Manfred
Pflumm since 1991. The main part of the restoration work was completed
at the museum’s location in Schwenningen-am-Neckar in the Black
Forest, before the aircraft successfully completed its maiden post restoration
flight on Saturday May 26, 2012. Two days later it was flown over to our
home base in Wevelgem.
Now on the civil register as G-ONAA, the tail number was especially dedicated
in order to commemorate the aircraft manufacturer, GO North American Aviation.
