The Harvard is in quite good condition and must be one of the very few held by a private institution. It is painted yellow and is just outside the HIET’s main building. No information is available on its previous history or registrations. Overall this well maintained aircraft is a far cry from the derelict lying in Chennai that is mentioned in other pages.
The Harvard sports a false registration VT-KCG – which are the intials of the chairman of the College. The Rudder of the aircraft is clearly not a Harvards. It lacks the rounded pointed profile on the top. Can anyone id the Rudder for us?
