We are pleased to announce the Ada Air Expo 2013 will be hosting Steve Dean from Gilmer, TX with his Flight of the Phoenix Escadrille of 4 T-6’s.
At the outset of WW II, all of Europe and the British Commonwealth, including Canada and South Africa called the T-6 the “Harvard”. Official nickname was “Texan”, derived from the fact that most of planes were built at North American Aviation in Dallas during the war.
The South African Air Force was the last Air Force in the world to operate the Harvard. In November1995, SAAF replaced the Harvard with the Swiss Pilatus PC-7.
Look forward to exciting formation aerobatics and precision flybys. For more information please see this page.
