Heeter's BroncoFest III Pictures Contributed by Heath "Heeter" Thomas

Joe Copalman, Lendy Edwards, Jim Hodgson, and Tom Kemp hangin' out in the Bronco PX. (I bet that Joe was only pretending to look busy for the purposes of this photo.)

Members of the Venezuelan Wing pose with some OBA members. Left to Right: Macedonio Cierpa, Angel Condi, Jim Carlton, Terry Tabor, Louis Mendoza, Heath Thomas.

OBA Chaplain Howie Pierson talks about being the next-to-last FAC over the fence at the end of the Vietnam War. (His backseater was of course the LAST guy back!)

Here you can see the PX and silent auction areas during a quieter moment.

Angel and Louis talk with Joe as they decide what to buy. The VWOBA crew nearly cleaned us out... I bet all that Bronco stuff will be a big hit back in Venezuela!

Louis Mendoza and Angel Condi pose by the donation display table.

Louis Mendoza and Angel Condi with the wonderful patriotic Bronco display made by OBA Curator Garry Goff.

Angel Condi, Heath Thomas, and Louis Mendoza say hello to the camera. Heath contributed the photos for this page.

Superwebmaster gets ready to fly off to save another crashing website... aka Mike Whaley. Yes, I do always look like this. Really.

The Flight Suit Party.

More shots from the Flight Suit Party.

The group parties in the hootch.

Folks catch up on the latest at the hotel bar.

Ron Fix welcomes Jack Ballard to the museum. Awwwwwww.

This is the cockpit section of the mockup. It's going to make a neat display someday!

The cockpit area is actually in pretty good shape, all things considered.

The cockpit of the mockup. It looks like most of the parts are still there.

Some parts were stored in the cargo bay for transportation.

The wing and tailbooms.

When it was offloaded, the mockup was placed in a VFM storage hangar. Soon it will have a more suitable resting place while the restoration process begins.

Closeup of the tailbooms and wing.
