Beautifully done, as ever, Clave.
I've seen Texans in formation aerobatics, out here in NZ. A group that goes by the name of "The Roaring Forties".
In recent years, most of the surviving Texans have found their way into syndicated ownership by various warbird groups and affiliates.
There's something to be said when hearing and seeing a dozen Texans pull out of a formation Loop-the-Loop at about 400mph ias at about 600foot agl. It is of interest that much of the engine "roar" is due to the fact that the tips of the propellers at maximum thrust exceed the speed of sound, and thus establish a temporary 'cavitation effect', which both echoes and dopplers the sound of the motor.

Kind Regards Clave, Uyraell.

Beautifully done Clave. :)
Interestingly, the South Africans only retired the last of their AT6's and sold them off in the late 80's early 90's.
I think the last couple were sold to Australia and New Zealand interests in '95.
Not a bad "lifetime" for an aircraft that began life as a "temporary measure"!.

P.S: if you want a Really interesting Profile, there's a single surviving NA 80, single seater Fighter, built for Thailand in 1940.
AT6 airframe, became the basis of the "D Model" for the armed AT6's the French etc used. The NA 80 is currently in the USA.

Kind Regards Clave, Uyraell.

Stunningly beautiful as ever Clave, Very Well Done !
It might interest you to know: (ex) "RNZAF 1079" is still flying, and in fact flies these days as one of the " The Roaring Forties" display group I mentioned earlier. (Post #2.)
I have several times seen 1079 in flight and in person, so to speak. The aircraft is one of the more well known warbirds in NZ. It is a pleasure to see 1079 depicted here. :)

It might also interest you to know that South Africa Air Force #7675 is also in NZ, registered to a syndicate in Auckland, and has flown as part of "The Roaring Forties" also. That aircraft was among the number brought into NZ in the late 1980's, early 1990's.

Your plates add much value to this forum, and I seriously Recommend Admin here vote you a signature or Merit badge for your very fine contributions.
It is my hope that the moderators will second this motion/recommendation.

Hi toastmaker,
Clave posted beautiful color scale drawings of the famous North American T-6 Texan, in all the different versions that were adopted by the Air Force of about 60 Countries. You can only read the caption of every single drawing, but i don't know why the image aren't available. What a pity! They were high quality drawings.
