On September 24, 2000, the OV-10 Bronco Association was proud to announce the official formation of the second international OBA wing, known as the Philippine Wing. The PWOBA is comprised mainly of the 16th Attack Squadron of the Philippine Air Force, which spends much of its time performing maritime patrol over the Spratlys, forest protection, rainmaking and search and rescue missions using OV-10s. The commander of the PWOBA is Captain Silvestre U. Glinoga.

Due to military restrictions imposed due to what is currently going on in the Philippines associated with the attempts to free the hostages being held by terrorists, we aren't able to get as much information on some things as we otherwise could. (This is just one of the minor inconveniences you run across while dealing with an airplane type that's still in active military and governmental service!) However, the PWOBA will provide us with as much unclassified information and photos as they can, which we will bring to you as it becomes available.

The Philippine Air Force has operated OV-10As for 26 years, and the 16th has had them since 1992 when they replaced the AT-28D's flown by the unit since 1972. The first combat-qualified female pilots in the PAF fly Broncos with the 16th as well. As the 16th continues to fly the OV-10, they are still writing a significant chapter in the great book of Bronco history.
