T-6 Texan II Exterior Detail Photos:

 

The photographs in this set were taken of a U. S. Air Force T-6A Texan II during a visit by the aircraft to Falcon Field at Peachtree City, Georgia.  All are Detail & Scale copyright photographs taken by Bert Kinzey.

The forward area of the right side of the fuselage is dominated by one of the two large exhausts for the Pratt & Whitney PT-6A-68 turboprop engine.  The powerplant turns a four-bladed Hartzell propeller that can be fully feathered as shown here.  (Detail & Scale copyright photo by Bert Kinzey)

Access to the engine compartment can be gained through large access panels on each side of the forward fuselage that are hinged at the top.  The interior of the engine compartment is painted with Chromate Green primer.  (Detail & Scale copyright photo by Bert Kinzey)

The shape of the wing’s airfoil is visible here.  Note the red navigation light on the forward-most point of the wingtip and the white light just aft of it.  This view also provides a good look at the large canopy.  (Detail & Scale copyright photo by Bert Kinzey)

Details on top of the left wing are visible here.  Noteworthy are the red fueling point for the wing tank and the ground point next to it.  The aileron has a trim tab at the inboard end, and four static dischargers are further outboard on the trailing edge.  (Detail & Scale copyright photo by Bert Kinzey)

The leading edge of each wing is natural metal.  There is a small stall strip on each leading edge.  (Detail & Scale copyright photo by Bert Kinzey)

The lights on the tip of the right wing are shown here.  The static dischargers can be seen on the aileron, and the pitot probe beneath the right wing is protected by a cover with a red remove-before-flight warning streamer on it.  Also note the shield on top of the wingtip which protects the crewmembers’ eyes from the brightness of the lights.  A shield is also on the left wingtip, although it is difficult to see in the photos.  (Detail & Scale copyright photo by Bert Kinzey)

The Texan II has a tricycle landing gear.  The nose gear is mounted at the forward end of its well and retracts rearward.  The oleo link is to the front, and there is a mudguard covering the top aft quarter of the tire.  (Detail & Scale copyright photo by Bert Kinzey)

There are large filets on both the vertical and horizontal tail surfaces.  The rudder has two tabs which together cover almost its full span.  There is a navigation light at the top of the leading edge of the vertical stabilizer.  Note also the natural metal area on the leading edge of the vertical stabilizer and how it extends down on the side of the filet.  (Detail & Scale copyright photo by Bert Kinzey)
