More info:

The North American NA-64 Yale was a low-wing single-engine monoplane advanced trainer aircraft used by the Royal Canadian Air Force and the French Air Force during World War II. It was a development of the earlier NA-16 and NA-18 designs, with a more powerful engine and a retractable landing gear. The Yale was originally ordered by France in 1939, but the delivery was interrupted by the German invasion in 1940. The remaining aircraft were diverted to Canada, where they were used for pilot training under the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan.
The Yale was considered obsolete by the time it entered service, but it proved to be reliable and agile. It was nicknamed “the Yellow Peril” by its pilots because of its bright yellow paint scheme and its tendency to spin easily. The Yale was retired from service in 1945 and most of them were sold as surplus. Some of them were restored and flown by private owners and collectors in later years.
