Every year we recognise some aviation anniversaries, so in addition to the above this year we are marking the 80th anniversary of North American T-6 Harvard (aka Texan & SNJ), one of the key training aircraft used by the USAF, RAF and Commonwealth forces. The Harvard has a long association with North Weald, as it was the home of the Harvard Formation Team during the 1980s and 90s. We would also like to mark the 70th anniversary of the first flight of the classic post war American tourer, the Cessna 170.
