February 28,1966: A pair of Mohawks from the 1st Cavalry Division in flight. Among the uses of the aircraft was that of an integrated surveillance system to assist ground commanders with a readily available and highly responsive intelligence-gathering capability.

The OV-1C in the foreground is equipped with an infrared system.
