About Video - Flying the Historic North American Harvard II (T-6G Texan) | Aerobatics at Kjeller | Fly with Magnar "Flying the Historic North American Harvard II (T-6G Texan) | Aerobatics at Kjeller | Fly with Magnar" Join me as I take to the skies in the legendary North American Harvard II, also known as the T-6G Texan, a historic aircraft cherished by the Norwegian Spitfire Foundation (NSF). Established in 2012, the NSF is dedicated to restoring and operating historic aircraft, preserving a significant part of Norway's aviation heritage. Their notable project includes rebuilding PL258, a Spitfire with a storied Norwegian history from WWII. Kjeller Aerodrome, where the NSF is based, is Norway's oldest airport, established in 1912. It is home to more than 30 historic aircraft, including the North American Harvard II. This particular aircraft, registered LN-TEX, was built in 1944 and has seen service with the Royal Air Force, Belgian, Portuguese, and German air forces. The Harvard is renowned for its distinctive sound, a result of its propeller tips breaking the sound barrier. In this video, I am joined by Helge Storflor, an experienced display pilot, who expertly demonstrates the aerobatic maneuvers performed during airshows. The Harvard is an excellent trainer with a reputation for challenging stall and spin characteristics. Helge ensures safety by avoiding low-energy maneuvers during our flight. Experience the breathtaking views over Oslo, especially when we’re flying upside down!
