question from. Chris Kanca.

I'm hoping to get some assistance with a research question. Bird-dog related but more VN-era FAC pilot question rather than about the aircraft itself. I'm researching use of the HGU-7 flight helmet by O-1 crews. Specifically, whether it was an issue item or possibly a helmet brought into the FAC community from another platform? Very few photos showing the helmet in use (I've seen four) vs hundreds showing the more common HGU-2 series of helmets. Note sure if the question is outside the scope of your website? Thanks for taking the time to read this. Chris Kanca, Effingham, NH

I am trying to identify Bird Dog owners in the Tampa area.  Later this month (May 29-June 1st) we are planning a reunion of an old Army unit. Our commanding officer learned to fly the Bird Dog at Gary Field in San Marcos, Texas in the 1960's and flew in Vietnam.  He is now in his 80's and hasn't been in a Bird Dog for over 50 years.  I would like to see if I can find someone willing to give him a ride.  I'll cover the fuel and pay all additional expenses.  I am Ed Cooper and live in Austin, Texas.  My mobile number is 512.423.1143.  Please call or email
