I went through flight training in the Pensacola area from October, 1954 through October, 1955 and flew the SNJ-4,-5,and the -6. I flew a SNJ-6 on 10/05/1955 with a Serial # 112124 that is very close to the one listed. I still have my log book with all of the times I flew in the SNJ. The SNJ was a lot of fun to fly and very acrobatic. I hope to visit the museum in the very near future.

Interested in your site. My late father was a Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm pilot who trained at Pensacola in 1942...I still have the certificate and US Navy wings that he earned. Perhaps your site might menbtion the help that the USN provided in training British naval aviators, who then went on to fly the F4F, F6F and F4U (Wildcat, Hellcat & Corsair to us) in ops with TF57 in the Pacific. My father trained on SNJs amongst other types. I hope to make it to the museum one day.

Worked in crash crew 1953-55. Many adventures with Navcads landing at OLF's. Biggest memory was the Hurricane that caught us by surprise, wasn't time to fly away. Hanger was filled with planes from other fields and ALL of our SNJ's were lifted up, wheels retracted and lowered onto sandbags and tied down right there on the line. Quite a sight all lined up lying flat on the deck. Wish now I had taken a picture of that.

I mostly remember the SNJ from the TV Series Black Sheep Squadron!
