Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

The AT-6 Advanced Trainer.  Twin-seat Army Air Force and then Air Force trainer used to prepare the majority of US pilots in WWII.  Also used by Britain, Australia and Canada and the US Navy.  Called the Texan (USAAF), Harvard (RAF), Yale, I-Bird, Mosquito, Wirraway (Australia), T-6 and SNJ (USN).  Saw combat in British Air Force.  The AT-6 was used in the Korean War, too, as a forward observer plane, spotting and marking targets.
This postcard was mailed 1 July 1944 from Aloe air Field in Texas by a pilot in training ("this is the plane I'm flying now, it's a pretty nice little ship")
