Feel the rush of adrenaline run through your body as you speed down the airstrip and lift off into the clear blue sky in an authentic 1943 North American AT-6!

The expertly restored Texan was once equipped with guns and bomb attachments and saw service with the Mexican Air Force at one time during its military service during WWII.
