Welcome to our Bronco Newsletter!

Bronco Demo Team was formed in 2010 by a group of OV-10 Bronco enthousiasts. Our main goal is to maintain a living memory of this significant historic airplane and present the Bronco fully operational in its natural environment - flying through the sky - at airshows worldwide.

Enjoy, fly and live safe!

2017 Theme: Bringing Poppies From Flanders Field

The Bronco Demo Team's OV-10 will be bringing Poppies from Flanders Fields to venues and airshows all over Europe in 2017; supporting a message of peace and reconciliation in remembrance of the sacrifice by so many 100 years ago

The Bronco Demo Team is based at Kortrijk-Wevelgem airport situated just 12 nm East from the Ypres salient. The airfield was first used during World War I, initially by German fighter squadrons and later, during the advance of the Allied Powers leading to the end of the conflict, by the Royal Air Force.

As a commemoration of The Great War, the Bronco Demo Team has adorned their OV-10 Bronco in a truly amazing new "Poppy" livery. The Poppies and "LEST WE FORGET, 1914-18" graphics reflect light differently when the aircraft moves, producing a different shine and brightness at various angles. The effect is outright awesome and very unique!

Our OV-10 Bronco will carry actual Poppy seeds to venues and airshows in 2017, underlining theme. The seed packets will be offered for sale at the shows, with each bag individually marked with flight date and show name. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to charity.      
The 2017 season is certainly looking to become another excellent one judging by the number of enquires and bookings already received at this early stage.
We are already looking forward to meeting you at venues around Europe and the United Kingdom this year!
