I'm not sure what the question is. Yes, both are on here. For the T-6, acceptable answers include T-6, AT-6, Texan, Harvard.

I've typed in Vultee Vengeance several times in attempting this quiz, and I know at least one other person who has done likewise, and it's not being accepted. And the first time I tried, Harvard / Texan weren't accepted either.

Looks like I may not have saved it with the Vengeance in there, or overwritten it or something, so thanks, and sorry for the error. I just updated it with the Vengeance, so as soon as they approve it, it'll be current.

Not sure if the Texan/Harvard was a glitch, but it seems to be working for me.

Thanks for taking and for letting me know I left out the Vengeance!
