about the 219th Headhunters and quoting several of us "old guys" who were at the
reunion.. Read it for yourself here. You can also go to

ARTICLE ABOUT 219TH - Tom
Block Editor-At-Large for Aviation Group, LTD is doing an article about the
Birddog titled "CESSNA AT WAR". In it he would like to feature the 219th
Aviation Company. Many of you met Tom at the reunion. He and his partner Jim
Corley flew their beautiful O-1 into the Daytona Airport for many of us to see.
For the article, Tom needs short experiences that many of us had with the
Birddog in Vietnam. You can submit your experience directly to Tom. Please
include any photos that might be good for the article. The article will appear
in the March 2007 issue of CESSNA FLYER Magazine. Keep your
experiences brief and accurate. For example, I shared with Tom how "I
exceeded the aircraft's airspeed redline while doing a split-S and misjudging my
angle to the target. The airspeed was over 210 knots when the noise of high
speed air flowing by coupled with metal creaking awakened me from "target
fixation". I managed to recover without folding up the wings at an altitude no
more than 100 feet AGL." Send your experience and photos to -
