This is the lady that wanted some support from us for the Veteran's Day celebration in Birmingham, AL. Melissa told me that the event is a one-day event. She is asking Atlantic Aviation for a fuel discount, which they have given in the past to other warbirds. This year's event is in honor of the Forward Air Controllers, US Army, US Air Force and US Marines, so to have a herd of Birddogs on the

Email sent to Minard : Mr. Thompson, we connected earlier this year when I reached out regarding your future event schedule and if Dayton could be in the conversation as a host site. Thank you for taking time to reply. I understand that fuel prices have hindered some from attending events as well. It is interesting that you bring up landing at Wright Patterson. I recall that a L-19 is hanging in the Museum----but my untrained

OK Guys. The Museum at Fort Worth put out this request: Eleven years ago, the Fort Worth Aviation Museum acquired a surplus O-1 Bird Dog. It has since undergone restoration by Cowtown Aerocrafters, who have done a fantastic job. The right side of the aircraft is painted in tribute to Hilliard Wilbanks, the only USAF Bird Dog FAC awarded the Medal of Honor. The left side is painted as a Red Marker aircraft, honoring one

FYI Guys Notice to owner/operator members:The FAA has finally flipped the switch on the AD for the gasket on the F&M oil filter adapters for a ton of engines - including the Birddogs’ O-470-11s and O-470-15s. Many of our Birddogs have the F&M (now Tempest/Stratus) brand of adapters. If you use screw-on Champion-type oil filters, you probably have one of the affected adapters. AD requires replacement of the fiber gasket in the assembly with a
