Oh, really?The Coast Guard dispatched a 25-foot rescue boat and a rescue helicopter, both with crews, to respond to the crash.
North American SNJ-6 Texan N46LF was flying in a formation of five aircraft, when it crashed into the ocean killing the pilot and passenger.

The North American T-6 is actually called the Texan. It was called the Harvard in the UK and Canada. Did you mean the Piltaus/Beech/Raytheon Texan II? The "II" part pays homage to the original Texan trainer...which is also why Canada Calls them Harvard IIs.cpl_atc wrote:Looks like they're talking about one of the original T-6s, not to be confused with the Texan.
