Rare Vietnam O2 Project Available

From the ad: "Cessna O-2 Skymaster could reluctantly be bought for $11,000. It was flew over Laos in the Vietnam War for the US Air Force and was later transferred to the US Navy."

Not my A/C, I know nothing more about it.

Available on FB marketplace in Alvin, Texas. Also has a Trojan project for sale.

This aircraft was one of the two Navy planes that were civilian owned. It's been setting for the past couple of years as a static display. It still has all the radio racks in the back missing most radios. . I saw it about 2 weeks ago and was talking to the former owner who we used to fly in numerous air shows together primarily in the 90s. It has two hard points on each wing, the 505 gun site has been removed.
