The Evolved T-6 — Walt Orth’s LTA-6 Mosquito

As the Korean War raged the United States Air Force implemented a new tool in their arsenal. From their inventory of AT-6 Texan trainers there arose a new breed of the aircraft that would serve as a front line liaison and attack aircraft. Working together with Jeep based Tactical Air Control Parties, the LTA-6s provided close air support and battlefield reconnaissance. This is the story of how Walt Orth successfully transformed a T-6 into a one-of-a-kind, fully authentic LTA-6G Mosquito.
