I was amazed to see Charlie Pletcher's name. We were both in USAF Pilot Training class 56-n at Marianna, FL in 1955, and good friends. We were in one of the very last classes to fly T-6G's in the USAF.

My father, Russell Puchalski, worked as a tool and die maker in the Canada Car factory in Thunder Bay, Ontario after WWII, and built T-6 "Harvards", as they were called in Canada. His crew built the last batch of T-6's (13 aircraft) ever made in their factory, which were flown to Pennsylvania for delivery.

A very special T-6 . Graduated June 1943 Class 43F Selma Alabama .1,000 hours in the back seat as instructor at many schools . Flight Test at Wright Field had a Model with an Experimental All Glass Wing made by Corning Glass , Elmira , NY . A program for 500 hours service test was conducted of which I flew many hours .This wing had such a low Radar Image that a Transponder had to be installed for Test programs , Perhaps this was the beginning of Stealth . Wright Stuff 1949-53 .

A North American AT-6 Texan just cruised in for a landing at the Blue Ash (Ohio) Airport across from my office building. I found that it is here just for the general public to purchase flights. I say flights, not rides, because they will let you fly the plane, everything except takeoff and landing. It is pricey, but the notes I saw on their website make it sound worth the money. See this website:

Of all the planes I flew as a USAF pilot during the 1950s, the AT-6 Texan was my favorite despite the fact that my instructor and I crashed two of them during primary flight training in 1952.What a sweet flying experience it was to solo in this trainer!!
