SNJ-5 Sassy

About This Aircraft
No better aircraft could symbolize America’s aviation status at the start of America’s entry into WWII than its premier, advanced flight trainer that will eventually be responsible for arguably training more fighter and bomber pilots than any other single series aircraft type. Air Group One's SNJ-5 “Sassy” is the Navy & Marine version of the North American Aviation T-6 Texan, a single-engine advanced trainer aircraft used to train pilots of the United States Army Air Forces, United States Navy, Royal Air Force and other air forces of the British Commonwealth during World War II and into the 1950s. Designed by North American Aviation, the T-6 is known by a variety of designations depending on the model and operating air force. The USAAC designated it as the "AT-6", the US Navy the "SNJ", and British Commonwealth air forces, the Harvard, the name it is best known by outside of the United States. It remains a very popular warbird aircraft at air shows around the world today.
