History

The North American T-6 Texan was an advanced training airplane with cantilever low wing and retractable gear, produced by North American Aviation from 1937. During the Second World War it was in service with USAF, US Navy, RAF and all the Air Forces of the British Commonwealth. It was one of the more successful aircraft in its category, produced for over 20 years in more than 15 thousands. The English version was known as Harvard. It was used as trainer and, in the period after the war, also as FAC and light fighter. The aircraft exhibited in the museum (actually a Harvard 2) comes from Reggio Emilia, where it was abandoned, wearing RR-54 codes. It was donated by the Italian Air Force to Volandia and was restored by ASAS. From 2013 it has been exhibited in the new livery, with the original codes RM-10 of 1a Regione Aerea and MM 54188.
