The Royal Thai Air Force is to donate OV-10 Bronco aircraft to the Philippine Air Force.

Philippines spokesman Brig. Gen. Jose Mabanta Jr. said that AFP Chief of Staff Gen. Ricardo David Jr. has finalized the matter to Thailand officials during his visit there over the weekend as one of the guests of Thailand King Bhumibol Adulyadej during his 84th birthday last Sunday.

“The finalization of the donation of the Royal Thai Armed Forces, in particular the Royal Thai Air Force, of their OV-10 to the Philippine Air Force was taken up,” said Mabanta.

“The matter has been discussed long ago but they are just talking about the particulars,” said Mabanta.

It was not clear, however, how many OV-10 Broncos are to be donated by Thailand.
