About the North American T-6:
Known as the "Pilot Maker" because it trained over 100,000 allied pilots in WW II, the Texan was built as an advanced fighter trainer for the U.S. Army, the U.S. Navy and many Allied nations.

The designation AT-6 was used by the Army Air Corps, while the Air Force referred to it as a T-6, and the Navy called the aircraft an SNJ. The Commonwealth Air Forces referred to it as a Harvard.

The planes were designed to be flown by experienced pilots transitioning to the hot front line during the war and were used to teach air combat, gunnery, bombing and aircraft carrier operations.

"The flight was more incredible than expected. The pilot was amazing and his years of experience and service were evident. The only negative was that the pilot was told that we were flying from a different airport than what we were told. When he wasn't there by our flight time, I called and he flew down to Hawthorne which took an additional 30 minutes. It was worth it, but if we had been on a tight schedule it would have been a problem. "
