The Best Trainer Aircraft?

If you’ve been a fan of old warbirds for a time now, then you’ve probably heard of the North American T-6 Texan. This single-engined trainer aircraft was used by several branches of the US military during World War Two and into the 1970s to train their pilots.

The US Air Force called it the AT-6, the British forces named it “Harvard”, while the US Navy designated it as the SNJ.

Powered by a Pratt & Whitney R-1340-AN-1 Wasp radial engine, this warbird means business. Below, you can see the SNJ-3 start up with an inertia starter. 

Just goes to show, no matter the aircraft, the radial engine still sounds the best!
