Reno Air Racer
Big Tex represents a classic Reno AT-6 Pylon Racer. North American produced the Advanced Trainer in 1935 to train American pilots for a combat role in the coming war. Soon most of our allies were using them too and not just as trainers. After the war the government sold off large numbers of AT-6's to civilian pilots. It wasn't long until they began to show up at the air races. In Reno, Nevada a special category was set aside for the AT-6 TEXAN aircraft and they thrilled spectators with their speed and daring. Based on the 1953 Walt Musciano AT-6, this model will allow you to enjoy flying this fine plane at you own air races!
