The Harvard Trainer, also called the AT-6 Texan in the USA, was a
WWII twin-seat trainer with a completely enclosed glass canopy, a
tall body and low-set rectangular wings. During the war the prairie
skies were filled with them, thereby spawning the local epithet "The
Yellow Horde." The total production of the trainer family was
an awesome 21,342. Many are still in service in a variety of uses.
