EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2013
North American T-6/SNJ Texan


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. The Texan is celebrating it's 75th year this year, and the showing at Oshkosh was big, with mass formations and lots of flights. When 38 flew over then broke up into groups of four to break formation and land, it sounds like a WWII training base.
