Everyone’s Favorite Trainer
This sleek-looking T-6 Texan looks absolutely unreal as it takes off from a grassy strip in Florida. Video uploader HeliPylot went ahead and boarded a helicopter just to watch these Texans take off one by one.
As you can imagine, this resulted in amazing angles that showed off how awesome these planes are. The sound of its Pratt & Whitney radial engine was also a huge bonus for aviation fans. We don’t usually see these planes nor hear its engine that frequently!
Back in the Second World War, these planes were mainly used for training – but some were repurposed into combat roles when needed. This aircraft probably trained everyone’s favorite aviator at some point!
