This aircraft was delivered to the USAF as 51-16910. Obviously the attributes that made the O-1 so good at Forward Air Control sorties were also suitable for spotting forest fires. After its service was finished this O-1 went to NC but is now on display at the Tennessee Museum of Aviation.

Overview of the main apron at GKT taken from the balcony of the small terminal building. Many thanks to Cliff S. for his help! The Tennessee Museum of Aviation is directly in front with their Albatross and Retriever outside on the ramp. Runway 10/28 is on the right with the beautiful Great Smoky Mountains in the distance.

Originally delivered to the USN as 139665 but then passed on to the SVNAF. Shortly before the fall of Saigon it was flown to U Taphao AB, Thailand and then abandoned. In 1979 it was transported by ship to the US and restoration begun in 2008. This process revealed traces of the original 'Lieutenant America' as well as 'Sharon's Satyr' noseart.
