FAC Aircraft Damaged at Hurlburt AFB Air Commando Air Park
OV-10 is OK, other planes not so lucky
By Ned Helm
OBA and FAC Association member Ned Helm reports that according to the Air Commando Association, Hurricane Ivan caused significant damage at the Air Park at Hurlburt AFB when it hit the area in September. Hurlburt experienced winds around 120mph. The 0-1E Bird Dog was on its back with a broken tail, having apparently flown down the road to the end of the runway (or perhaps it flew over the trees and landed by the end of the runway.) It has now been removed from the park. The U-10A Courier was also damaged and will be returned to the park after being repaired. The C-123K Provider also suffered damage, and the AC-130A Spectre gunship had shifted about 30 degrees on its pad. OV-10A Bronco (626), the most recently installed aircraft in the park, was OK, as was the O-2A Skymaster. Other aircraft with a place of honor in the Airpark (which we haven't yet heard anything about) include an A1-E Skyraider, A-26 Counter Invader, B-25J Mitchell, AC-119 Shadow, C-123K Provider, C-46 Commando, AC-47 Spooky, H-3 Jolly Green Giant, T-28 Trojan, OA-37B Dragonfly, and a UH-1P Huey.
