Vintage Glory! Restored IAF T-6 Harvard Heads Home
The Indian Air Force’s restored vintage North American T-6G Harvard trainer is on its way back home! Bundled into an IAF C-17, the aircraft arrives in India on July 28 and will be shown off to the public for the first time at the Air Force Day celebration on October 8. The IAF C-17 is already at RAF Brize Norton in Oxfordshire to embark the aircraft, the second vintage IAF plane restored by Flt Lt Mike Edwards, after the de Havilland Tiger Moth that performed at 2012’s AF Day celebration.
The Harvard remained in Indian service across independence, from 1942 till 1975.
