T-6 Texan trainers (SNJ and Harvards)

North American T-6 Texans and Harvard trainers I have had the good fortune to photograph in person. Following WWII, some of the Texan trainers were armed and pressed into combat service in several conflicts, including the T-6D Mosquito that saw service in Korea and Vietnam.
