BUENOS DíAS a TODOS:
I am confused about this ID of a Texan. It has a german flag & a french flag on the vertical stabilizer, plus a logo on the side that I do not fathom either. Also, registration is D for Deutschland:

This is an ex South African Airforce Harvard aircraft. The logon on the side is a Springbok antelope inside a shape depicting that of the old fortress in Cape Town. The red white and blue flag is probably because South Africa is a member of the British Commonwealth. The SAAF had many of these (a Hundred +). The Harvard was a version of the North American AT6. I personally have worked on most of the SAAF Harvards as an aircraft electrician. These served in the SAAF up until the mid 90's whereby they were auction off. This particular one probably was bought by a German enthusiast. I hope this throws some light on your question.
