North American T-6 Texan – A popular WWII Warbird
The T-6 Texan has been designed and built by North American Aviation. The North American T-6 is a single-engine advanced trainer aircraft, but it was also used in Combat. This Warbird was used to train fighter pilots of the Royal Air Force, United States Air Force, United States Navy, Swiss Air Force and other air forces. In total, the T-6 Texan has been operated by 60 air forces. The South African Air Force operated the Texan until 1995 when it was replaced by Pilatus PC-7. The reason was that South Africa faced an embargo because of its Apartheid policies. The Texan was mainly used during World War II and into the 1950s, with a total of 15,495 units it is one of the mostly built aircraft. The T-6 is known by different designations depending on the operating air force and the aircraft model. The US Navy designated it as SNJ, the USAAC as the AT-6, and Commonwealth air forces as the Harvard. The T-6 remains a popular warbird aircraft. Today Raytheon Aircraft Company/Hawker Beechcraft produce the T-6 Texan II, a military trainer based on the Swiss Pilatus PC-9.
