Part of the Warbird Weekend which I unfortunately did not get to participate in, was rides in some of the vintage aircraft. I watched jealously as the vintage planes taxied for takeoff, circled around the field and then touched back down during the day.
North American LT-6 “Mosquito” (T-6 Texan, SNJ, Harvard) – Originally configured as an SNJ-4 (Navy version), this plane was restored to honor our Korean War Veterans as a LT-6 “Mosquito”, used for forward air control and close air support. Of course, this was the plane that every pilot – bomber or fighter – had to master before they were assigned to front line aircraft like the B-17, B-24, P-51 or Corsair to name a few.
