North American OV-10 Bronco FAC  
about:   Mark Schimmer documented his flight in this classic warbird.
"Well, last week I had the chance to fly 1.5 hours and two landings. It was quite an experience. We went through all the aerobatic exercises (I told him: go as you like. And boy, he did!).
First time I felt what it is to black out due to high g's. I also had the privilege to fly the "normal" route by myself, with him only telling me the heading and altitude, and instructing me otherwise. "
