WWII AT-6 Texan
FLY THE PILOT MAKER!
You can experience flight in an authentic World War II warbird at this year's Lake Cumberland Air Show!
The North American AT-6 Texan is by far one of the most recognizable aircraft of World War II. The Spanish Lady is a 1949 North American T-6G Texan, manufactured by North American Aviation in 1944 as an AT-6D. It is a two-seat aircraft and served as an advanced single engine trainer during the war. In many ways, the Texan served as a new airman's final exam before taking the controls of the front-line combat aircraft such as the P-51 Mustang.
Following World War II, The Spanish Lady continued to serve as a trainer for the U.S. Air force in Hondo, Texas through the early 1950s, and then transferred to the Spanish Air Force. The Spanish operated this aircraft up until the mid 1980s as both a trainer and a close air support aircraft. After her retirement, she returned to the United States and received a complete restoration to her original paint scheme as a U.S. Air Force T-6G advanced trainer.
