North American Harvard Schoolmaster of the Sky
Th Harvard will always be fondly remembered as the cradle of many a young pilot's flying dreams. The Harvard, or Texan T6 as it is more commonly known, has been used to train military airmen throughout the world, and became affectionately known as 'the schoolmaster of sky'.
Not only is she one of the greatest classics of all time, but was also the South African Air Force's best recruiting agent.
The Harvard started service with the SAAF as a trainer in 1940 and remained operational until the end of 1995, representing 55 years of pilot and ground crew training, making the SAAF one of the largest and most experienced operators of Harvards in the world.
Thanks to the foresight of passionate South African aviators, the Harvard legacy will live on for all to enjoy, and the characteristic rasp of this venerable machine and the memories will always fill our hearts.
