10/3/2005   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 - Tom Block, Aviation Group LTD, 687 N. Samsula Drive, New Smyrna Beach, FL 32168  Email: TomFlyingB@msn.com  or Fax 386-478-1072  Please do this As soon as possible
