SummaryEdit

Description
English: The North American Aviation T-6 Texan (also known as Harvard) was a single-engine advanced trainer aircraft used to train pilots of the Allied Air Forces during World War II and into the 1950s.

The T-6G, like this one, are earlier models AT-6/T-6s re-built between 1949-1953, which have improved cockpit layout, increased fuel capacity, modified landing gear with steerable tailwheel, updated radios and a 600hp R-1340-AN-1 engine.

This aeroplane served in the South African Air Force before it was bought by the Stampe en Vertongen Museum. It has a 9 cylinder, 600 hp Pratt & Whitney motor.
