t-6 wwII trainer

I mentioned that there was a warbird sitting in the hanger where Scott's shop is. After we had chatted with Scott for a while, Michael and I had the opportunity to have a seat in the T-6 trainer. How cool! Here is some info that I found out about this particular T-6:

Owner: Commemorative Air Force (CAF), Wisconsin wing 
History: SNJ -5. Naval version of the famous T-6 family of advanced WW2 trainers.Used by the Navy and Marines for advanced flying training,formation,gunnery and carrier landing qualification.This aircraft,flown by the Wisconsin Wing of the Commemorative Air Force (CAF), is unique due to it’s rare rear gunner seat and canopy.”
