Our Harvard is now in Anchorage!


Thursday, August 2, 2007 at 4:30 PM:    N421QB, the Harvard Mk IV assigned to the Alaska Wing of the CAF, arrived safe and sound at Anchorage.   Thanks to CAF pilot Carter Teeters of Tacoma Washington, who flew the aircraft from California to Anchorage.

Update 8/17/07:    We now have the Special Airworthiness and Operating Limitations for the Harvard.

Update 9/3/07:    Mike Hunt and Cricket Renner became the Wing's first two Pilots today.   Congratulations, Gentlemen!

 



The Harvard was the Canadian version of the T-6, also known as the AT-6 Texan and SNJ.
Pilots advanced to this advanced trainer after completing their training in a basic trainer Pilots would then look forward to transitioning to fighters or bombers.

The aircraft is powered by a Pratt and Whitney single row R-1340 which produces 600 horsepower.
