The most important advanced pilot trainer of World War II was the AT-6 Texan.  The aircraft was so good and so popular, that it was used by many different service branches and many different countries. Our aircraft was one of those built for use with the Navy during WWII. 

A much more advanced and challenging airplane than the BT-13, pilots who earned their wings on this great aircraft went on to learn how to fly the fighter or bomber that they would likely see combat with.
The Minnesota Wing SNJ can often be seen at air shows and flying in formation in and near the Twin Cities appearing over parades, memorial services and commemoration events. When not flying, the aircraft can be found at the Minnesota Wing hangar museum at Fleming Field in South St. Paul, MN.
