The good old Harvards make regular appearances and are often used in mock attacks on
the airfield and various other tasks. The Harvard is the name used outside the US for the
T-6 Texan, a trainer aircraft developed and used in World War II and the 1950s.
Harvards are popular warbirds. Over 17,000 Texans were built and over 350 are still flying.
They have also been used in movies to represent more rare aircraft.
