In 1942 the Army Air Forces ordered the PT-26 into production for the Royal Canadian Air Force under the Lend-Lease Program. A total of more than 1,700 PT-26s were produced in the United States by Fairchild and in Canada by Fleet Aircraft, Ltd. The PT-26 used a Ranger air-cooled, in-line engine.

Donated by Dr. L. Rodger Currie of Chelmsford, Mass.
