Riverside Airshow 2013
North American T-6/SNJ Texan/Harvard


The North American NA-16 prototype would eventually become the T-6 Texan. In US Navy designation, it was called the SNJ. The British called it the Harvard. By the end of the 1950s, the US had retired all of it's Texans from active service. In foreign service, the Texan trained pilots well into the 1970s! Over 17,000 were made and today, over 350 are still flying. The AT-6/SNJ is a rugged and dependable airplane. There were 5 Texans at the show flying some nice formations for the crowd.
