What Can I Expect

The Wacky Wabbit Harvard is going on tour! This is your chance to fly in this wonderful Harvard with a big personality. We are offering vouchers for a 20-minute flight from selected airfields around the East of England in this amazing plane.

This stunning Harvard was built as a T6J in 1953 at the Canadian Car & Factory Company. Commissioned by the USAF, the Harvard you'll be flying in was dispatched to Italy as part of the post-war initiative to rebuild Air Forces around Europe.

So how did this particular Harvard end up in England as the Wacky Wabbit? Well, in 2015 the present owners committed to what was a full and pain-staking restoration to bring this warbird back to prime airworthy condition.

Looking for a moniker for their newly resplendent Harvard in very nice RAF Desert Air Force (DAF) colours, the crew stumbled across the carrot-eating rabbit logo. This was actually used by the British Flying Training School in Florida during the 1940s. Inspired by this piece of aviation history, the Wacky Wabbit was born.

And now here he is, flying the skies of the UK as the Wacky Wabbit, offering flights to introduce you to the incredible world of Harvard warbirds. With that distinctive moniker and unusual livery, this Harvard is a sight to behold.

Team Wabbit, composed of the pilots, ground crew and technicians who look after the Wacky one are true heroes and utterly passionate about keeping this rather unique warbird flying in tip top condition. Book your 20-minute Wacky Wabbit Harvard flight now!
