Fort Worth Aviation Museum Storm Recovery

Storms Damage Historic Aircraft at Aviation Museum

Storm Damages Historic Aircraft 
We are raising money to benefit the OV-10 Bronco Association Inc's Fort Worth Aviation Museum.  A Father's Day Storm did substantial damage to our aircraft collections and facilities. 

Our Bell Oh-58 Kiowa, two war veteran helicopter, is a total loss.  Our Cessna O-1 Birddog observation aircraft also sustained damage along with our OV-10 Engineering Factory Mockup, AH-1 Cobra and four other aircraft, a trailer to transport the Kiowa, roof damage and variety of smaller items.  This has been a major set back to ur outreach and educational programs. 

Our Kiowa has been a frequent visitor to parades, school, air shows, and community events.  We consider it the most photographed aircraft in Texas having been visited by over 250,000 people over the last six years.  It will be hard to replace.

Any donation will help make an impact to recover from the storms.

Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me.
