Featured here is the North American Harvard Mark IV, which I was able to see flying in all its glory at the “Birds are Coming” airshow, and thanks to all the wonderful efforts of the Vintage Wings of Canada. This yellow bullseye beauty was manufactured in 1952, but the model itself first starting flying the skies in 1935 and was used, at the time, as an advanced training aircraft of war. Nearly 50,000 Allied pilots received their wings using the Harvard Mark IV at air training bases across Canada, and as part of the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan (BCATP). This plane uses a single Pratt and Whitney R-1340 engine. It has a wingspan of 37 feet, and John Gillespie Magee, author of the poem High Flight, is known to have flown under the Harvard 2866 markings. These facts, and many other interesting and notable points about Canada’s aviation history during 20th century wars can be found at: http://www.vintagewings.ca/
