HISTORY: The OV-10 Bronco was a multi-purpose, light attack aircraft acquired by the Marine Corp for observation squadrons to conduct visual reconnaissance missions. The OV-10A is a twin-turboprop short takeoff and landing aircraft conceived by the Marine Corps and developed under an Air Force, Navy, and Marine Corps tri-service program. The first production OV-10A was ordered in 1966 and its initial flight took place in August 1967. The OV-10 can be used for short take-offs and landings on aircraft carriers without the use of catapults. With the second seat removed, it can carry 3,200 pounds of cargo, five paratroopers or two litter patients and an attendant. Adding to its versatility is a rear fuselage compartment with a capacity of 3,200 pounds of cargo, five combat-equipped troops, or two litter patients and a medical attendant.
The Bronco's mission capabilities include observation, forward air control, helicopter escort, armed reconnaissance, gunfire spotting, utility and limited ground attack; however, the USAF acquired the Bronco primarily as a forward air control (FAC) aircraft. The Bronco also provides transportation for aerial radiological reconnaissance, tactical air observers, artillery and naval gunfire spotting and airborne controllers of tactical air support operations. Other tasks include armed escort for helicopters and front line, low-level aerial photography.

Hello Willie !
Please feel free to use the following statement in your ads:
After having bought eight different plans from "Uncle Willie" and having printed six of them, I will attest to the accuracy of his description. All plans are draftsman quality, are easily stored on a CD, and print out with precision, regardless of size. I had one plan printed out, full size, at a professional print shop. The results were top quality. With sixty years in model-airplaning, as a former aviation mechanic, I have not found better quality plans anywhere else, and his prices are 1/5 or less than average costs. It is predictable that his plans are not going to remain so very cheap for so very long.

The Sopwith Camel, well-known to readers of the famous "Peanuts" cartoon strip, was the most successful fighter plane of WWI. It shot down more enemy aircraft than any other fighter of any of the warring nations. However, because of its tricky handling characteristics, more men lost their lives while learning to fly it than died while using it in combat. The Camel was produced in Great Britain and went into action in June 1917 with the 70 Squadron ,Royal Flying Corps and 4 Squadron, Royal Naval Air Service. In the hands of an experienced pilot, it was highly maneuverable and at its best combat altitude of 12,000 feet, it was very difficult to defeat in a dogfight.... Although 5,490 Camels were produced, very few remain in existence today.

For the history on this plane.
HISTORY: In 1928, Mr. Pietenpol built and flew an airplane of his own design. The airplane was a single place open cockpit monoplane made from wood obtained at the local lumberyard, fittings fabricated from a blacksmith shop, and a covering of bed sheet material painted with clear varnish. The landing gear was constructed of gas pipe and motorcycle wheels. The prop was hand-carved from black walnut and powered by an Ace four cylinder water cooled engine. The airplane flew very well accumulating over fifty hours in the first two months. Several design modifications followed during the next five years; however, the basic design remained unchanged. During the process of modifications, the airplane became a two place with space for a passenger. The split axle landing gear with air wheels improved take-off and landing characteristics. The Ford A engine became the standard power plant turning a 78" x 42" propeller. The final design and drawings for the Air camper were completed in 1934. No further changes have been made to the original drawings. In 1933, a small factory was set up in Cherry Grove, Minnesota to make the metal parts and convert the Ford A engines. Milling and wood work was done in Wycoff, Minnesota. Airplane kits and aircraft materials were shipped from both locations. Completed airplanes were flown from a small grass strip located west of Cherry Grove. Throughout the years various engines were used: Ford A, Ford T, Ford V8, Velie, Kinner, Lycoming, Franklin, and Continental, all with good results. Airplane kits as well as completed airplanes were manufactured until the onset of W.W. II in 1941.
