Hobby Master HA1507 1:72 North American Aviation LT-6G Texan
Hobby Master HA1507 1:72 North American Aviation LT-6G Texan Austrian Federal Army Flight School Company 2 Linz/Hörsching Summer 1960.
During the Second World War, the AT-6 Texan was used as an advanced trainer. With
the outbreak of war in Korea the T-6s received a makeover. They were given special
radios and ADF, increased firepower and provision for an extra 55 gallons of fuel. The
equipment received by the Austrian Air Force didn’t have the setup for rockets and
missiles because of a restriction placed on them forbidding their use until the 1990s. Even the machine gun capabilities were removed. Once again the plane was strictly a trainer.
The Austrian Luftabteilung (Air Force) was created on September 13th 1955 and the
Fliegerschul (Flying School) was formed at Linz/Hörsching on October 1, 1957 with
Fliegerschulkompanie II (Flying School Company 2) beginning 7 months later. The first
aircraft were Yak-18s and Fiat G.46s but in 1960 under the MAP (Military Assistance
Program) the U.S. provided 10 replacement North American T-6 Texans. 4C-TH was
construction # 168-267 and built in 1949. Originally registered as 49-3163 and served in Austria as 4C-TH from October 1959 to November 1964 when it was scrapped. The
Texans were used for basic training and tactical training until 1971.
