The North American Aviation T-6 is an advanced American single engine training aircraft used to train pilots from the United States and more than 60 other countries. I am particularly passionate about this plane, mainly for its use in the Brazil[...]
Some of the rest of the shots from yesterday.
For the last five years, since we moved to Encino, these guys come right overhead on right-turn departure from One-Six-Right over at VNY, which is about a 10 minute drive from my house. So I finally decided I ought to do a feature article on The[...]
