That sounds familar. The "O' being observation in Army talk. Now that I think about it, I believe that is an Army plane.

When I looked at the OPs original photo I noticed the external pod under the starboard side of the fuselage so I think it is the D variant of the OV-1

You're correct! It sits over at the AF Armament Museum next to Eglin AFB! One hell of an aircraft. I was stationed in Guam with them.

I watched them fly into USAF bases in the late 80's while policing the demonstrations by 'the great unwashed' protesting about the nukes being brought in. Happy days.....not. Cold, wet and dozens of unwashed, tree huggers who didn't want to live within the system but wanted the benefit handouts provided by the system.
