FE695 was originally the Fighter Collection’s Harvard, below is brief summary of her history.
The Fighter Collection’s Harvard was built in December 1942 as an Mk.IIb by Noorduyn Aviation in Montreal, Quebec. She was allocated the RAF serial FE695 and served with the Royal Canadian Air Force training Commonwealth pilot trainees well out of the reach of enemy aircraft under the auspices of the Empire Air Training Scheme. FE695 wears the colours she wore during the latter war years in Canada giving tutelage to Commonwealth pilot trainees with the individual aircraft number ’94’.
Harvard FE695 was brought on charge in December 1942 with No.1 Training Command, and provided sterling service across Eastern and Central Ontario until November 1945 when she was placed into storage at Dunnville with 1449:30 hours logged on the airframe. FE695 was struck off by the RCAF in June 1947.
Following refurbishment she was taken on charge by the Swedish Air Force under the type designation Sk-16A with the individual identity Fv16105. Fv16105 served as an advanced trainer with the Swedish Air Force from August 1948 right up to March 1972 when she was given to a Technical School as an instructional airframe.
FE695/Fv16105 joined The Fighter Collection during 1990 and was subjected to a thorough overhaul between 1991 and 1995 and returned to the air over Duxford during May 1996
