GWOBA Update - September 12, 2000

SUMMARY:  We almost took off, first flight will be soon!!!
 

Dear OV-10 fans,

I am proud to inform you of some further achievements of our team. During the Fassberg Aeroclub Open-day on Sunday 3 September, we have been able to demonstrate both our Bronco's with good success - the aircraft is a crowd puller! With OV-10B tail number 99+32 participating in the static display and 99+26 performing some flawless taxi runs on the grass next to the runway, as well as high speed taxi demonstrations on Fassberg's 2800 meter hard runway. During the initial high speed taxi runs (up to 50 knots) all systems performed well and directional control proved excellent. On subsequent runs speed was gradually increased to 70 knots at which speed the nosewheel was lifted to see air under itself for the first time since 1991. Another major achievement!
