I didn't want to put all my pictures from the Air Show into one post. If you enjoyed the first part, you should enjoy this one.
The OV-1 program began as a joint Army-Marine program. The Marines didn't want the sensors the Army wanted, so they dropped out. The Air Force didn't like the armaments of the Mohawk and tried to get it killed. The Army managed to continue with the program. The first flight was in April of 1959 and production started that same year. A total of 380 were produced. The program continued into the mid-90's.

I went to the Selfridge Air Show on Saturday. It was free, so I headed over there fairly early.
