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, about 350 are still flying.
Sturdy and reliable, the Texan is also a crowd pleaser.
