Aircraft Description

The ‘Harvard’ is an American designed aircraft used extensively as a single-engined advanced fighter trainer for military pilots transitioning from low powered primary trainers to high performance front line fighters.

This aircraft was built in 1942 by North American, originally destined for the Royal Air Force but instead delivered to the South African Air Force and then in later years to the Portuguese Air Force.

Following a full rebuild in the UK in 1982, the aircraft has remained based in England and is fully airworthy and a well presented example of this much loved type.

    REMARKS

    The aircraft was originally ordered in 1942 by the RAF as “EX935”, but instead delivered to South Africa and operated as SAAF 7504 until 1969.

    The aircraft was then transferred to Fuerza Aera Portugal (the Portuguese Air Force) until it was taken off charge in 1978.

    UK import followed in 1980 with a full rebuild carried out in 1982.

    The present owner took ownership in 2017 and the aircraft is fully airworthy and well presented to this present day.
