Photo Comment

USAF 52-8570, to German AF AA-622 taken on charge Sep-1956, struck of charge 1966, it went to Aachen and next to the Luftwaffenmuseum in Uetersen, in 1983 it went to the Forsvarsmuseet at Oslo-Gardermoen. As Norway never had the T-6J, it was restored to look like a Harvard Mk2B and painted as Norwegian AF 8570 to commemorate the Harvards that served in the Norwegian Air Force from 1945 to 1956. Later it went to the Norsk Luftfartsmuseum in Bodø.
