FILM STUNT & MEDIA


Our T-6 Harvard's are available for film work providing excellent back drops for any WWII British fighter airfield. The T-6 Harvard was the primary trainer and company ‘Hac’ during WWII and was often seen on airfields not just in the United Kingdom but Worldwide.

The Harvard bears resemblance to the Japanese Mitsubishi Zero and to this end makes the Harvard perfect aircraft of choice for WW2 Japanese movie reenactments. Many T6 Harvard's were converted for the film 'Tora Tora' and G-BJST was actually used in the film 'Empire of the Sun'

Harvard (G-BJST) was used during the making of the film ‘Empire of the Sun" It is shown here (left) painted up to look like a Mitsubishi Zero. Apparently she was used as a ground prop surrounded by explosions in one of the bombing scenes. Unfortunately we don't have any further information on its staring roll!

Apparently at this time G-BJST was part of the Jeff Hawks collection that supplied aircraft to the film industry If you have any further information on its part in the film please let us know.
