Forward Air Controllers

Exhibit Overview

The OV-10 Bronco Association, Inc. was established in 1999 to honor the people of the OV-10 community and to preserve its history. Since that time, the Bronco Association expanded into the Forward Air Controllers Museum and Veterans Memorial Air Park. In 2014 the museum rebranded to the Fort Worth Aviation Museum but had maintained its roots in the Bronco and Forward air Controllers with the FAC Museum gallery.

These exhibits tell the history and development of finding targets, fixing their location, and prosecuting the enemy using Close Air Support aircraft, artillery, and naval gunfire.

Many of the aircraft in the FAC exhibits have close connections to those built and flown here in North Texas. Their history began in 1794 when a French General went aloft in a hot air balloon and directed his troops using string, bottles, pencil, and paper. That story continues today using drones and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

The OV-10 Bronco Association, Inc. is the parent company of the Fort Worth Aviation Museum.
