PT-19 High Sky Wing

Description:

The Fairchild PT-19 (with 12 variants) is a two seat trainer that was used by the USAAC/USAAF and fifteen other countries. This fixed landing gear tail-dragger, with an open cockpit, uses an inline engine which makes for a narrow front, allowing for good visibility. Nick-named “The Cradle of Heroes” for its significant role in preparing fledgling pilots for combat, the number of surviving, airworthy, PT-19?s is estimated to be less than 100.
