The North American T-6 Texan is a single engine, two-seat advanced trainer aircraft manufactured by North American Aviation. The North American T-6 Texan was known as “the pilot maker” because of its important role in preparing pilots for combat. During the Korean War and, to a lesser extent, the Vietnam War, T-6s were pressed into service as forward air control aircraft. These aircraft were designated T-6 “Mosquitos” achieving an excellent reputation due to its reliability, safety record and resistance to damage. The maiden flight of the T-6 Texan took place on the 1st of April 1935. Primary users were the United States Army Air Forces, United States Navy, Royal Air Force and South African Air Force. There were approx. 15,495 T-6 Texan produced. In 1985 the T-6 Texan retired from its service to the Brazilian Air Force. The T-6 remains a popular warbird aircraft used for airshow demonstrations and static.
