The PT-23 is a WWII-era primary trainer, used by the Army Air Force Corps. NECAF’s PT-23, N62476, was built in 1942, and is one of the first of the -23 models to come off the assembly line. (Other aircraft in the same family include the PT-19 and PT-26. In WWII, aircraft had different designations based on the powerplant installed.) The PT-23 features a 225hp radial engine, and is a low-wing fabric-covered monoplane. There are currently less than 100 flying examples of the PT-19 series worldwide, some of which are owned by the CAF.
The PT-23’s nickname was the Cradle of Heroes.
