Just noted there are four Texan II’s out of Des Moines en route to Toronto’s Pearson Airport - I’m guessing it is a delivery flight to ???

Dang…wish I’d known that, I would have skipped going to the ISU game for a while to see those guys…I need to keep a tighter lookout at my own airport…


#3

Just watched one go over my house, they are Israeli Air Force Trainers, I assume on delivery.

I haven’t heard anything about Canada surrendering, so yeah, probably a delivery flight.


#5

No worries. We’d never surrender. I should look for them my way!


#6

They would just need the four Texan II’s and their check book!

Aircraft are currently at Canadian Forces Base Goose Bay in Labrador.

Here and gone. Heading to Israel i think.
Four of twenty for various European Military.

Those are some nice looking PC-9’s

:wink:

They look do look like PC-9’s very much. Get two pics side by side of a PC-9 and a T-6. You can see several differences, such as the size of the tail, the wings, and the T-6 is 2 feet shorter than the PC-9. Just small little stuff like that… :stuck_out_tongue:


#10

Really? I didn’t think there was that much of a difference between the T-6II and the PC-9. Learn something new every day!

Well, they are very close together, but get some pics of the two and just look real close. :smiley:
