AVI-8 Hawker Hurricane watch meets OV-1 Mohawk

My AVI-8  Hawker Hurricane watch seems drawn to vintage aircraft like this OV-1C Mohawk.  It's a Vietnam-era observation and attack aircraft.

Here is a Mohawk in flight in an Army photograph.  While these aircraft are now retired, they do look like something from the World War II era.

The Mohawk flew from 1959 through 1996 when it was officially retired by the Army.  Even though it was a retro looking plane, NASA used them for flight research.  Here is a NASA Mohawk at Edwards Air Force Base in the 1980s.  It was used to research stall warning technology.

If you appreciate flight and aviation history, you'll like AVI-8 watches like my Hawker Hurricane.  The brand celebrates the dawn of the jet era with the Hawker Hunter watches.
