Nowhere were the classic North American Harvard and Texan advanced trainers and light combat aircraft more synonymous with
military aviation than in Central and South America. Over an incredible 72 years, ending only recently with the operational retirement of T-6s in Paraguay, the NA-16 and its descendants ruled the skies of this region.
This 300+-page book examines in awesome detail and for the first time, the incredible panoply of the NA-16, AT-6, SNJ and Harvard series in all ofLatin America. Richly illustrated with over 300 colour and b&w photos, many never-before-published, drawings and equipment details are supported by detailed historical analyses of individual military and civil aircraft, serial numbers and fates.
