North American T-6 Texan Start and Takeoff

A Friend of mine takes a ride in a very nice North American T-6 Texan. The Texan was used by the US Army Air Force as an advanced trainer during the second world war. It was built by North American Aviation and powered by a 600 hp Pratt and Whitney R-1340 radial engine. Its normal cruise speed is 145 mph.
