First flown in 1939, the Vultee BT-13 Valiant was a basic trainer aircraft used by the US Army Air Corps and US Navy.  For a variety of reasons, once in service, the aircraft quickly earned its nickname of “Vibrator.”  Both services replaced the BT-13 with the venerable T-6 Texan prior to the end of the war, and few airworthy examples are left.  Nikon D7100 w/18-200mm, processed with Photomatix Pro and Aperture.
