RAF and RCAF Harvards at Villeneuve Airport, Alberta.
The Harvard was the brittish, and brittish commonwealth, name for the North American T-6 Texan. Introduced in 1935, the Texan/Harvard flew up until 1995 (South African Airforce). Today it remains a popular warbird, and has been used to simulate A6M Zeros in a number of movies.

that40skid Some of my favorite artifacts: the painted A2 flight jackets. I've been to the Louvre, the Prado, the Thyssen, MoMa, the Met, the National Gallery, Boston MFA, and this is still my favorite artwork. Imagine how I must have felt, when a WWII Navy pilot, saw a reproduction that I hand painted myself, and mistook it for the real thing. #ww2 #wwii #worldwarii #worldwartwo #worldwar2 #secondworldwar #1940s

that40skid Everyone's heard of the famous "Varga Girls" and "Petty Girls". Well, if I'd been in World War II, this would've been a "Jerez Girl". That's what I would have done. I would have been in the Air Corps, and on the side, I would be the pin up artist for my unit. I wouldn't have minded that. #ww2 #wwii #worldwarii #worldwartwo #worldwar2 #secondworldwar #1940s #pinupgirl #noseart #armyaircorps #aac #aaf #usaac #usaaf #wwiipinup #pinupstyle #freckles 23h

the_ww2_album From the cockpit
__________________
A new series focusing on the view - captured on film - from the cockpit of various WW2 aircraft; whether it be the point of view of pilots, copilots, gunners, or bombardiers, I'll try and post it.

This is a very recent modern day sunset shot. Taken from the nose a North American B-25 Mitchell medium bomber during a warbird air display celebrating 68 years of the USAF, high over the Joint Base Anacostia–Bolling, in southeast Washington D.C., September 17, 2015.|#fromthecockpitseries
