In recent years, the Harvard had been joined by a HAL HT-2 that has been pole mounted. Thankfully it still carries the original serial number IX500 which should give us an idea of its history at some point of time.
|IX500 seen pole mounted at the School. The good condition of the paint and the pole mounting job seems to indicate that this is a recent acquisition.|
IX500 appears to be the 39th HT-2 in IAF service based on the sequence. The aircraft appears complete in its perch position.
