Sepia Scenes - North American T-28B Trojan

Built as the North American T-28B Trojan this was at one time the primary trainer for the Navy and Marines.  Also known as the Navy VT-2 "Doerbird" it was put into service in 1960 as a trainer for the U.S. Armed forces and is still used as a flight trainer.  See this blog post by a Navy aviator in training.  For a history of the aircraft during the Vietnam war and afterwards see Wikipedia.  This aircraft and others were on display at the Oklahoma Air Guard's Family Day September 11, 2010.

In San Diego is an aircraft carrier permanently stationed as a museum of older models of air force planes -very interesting!

The grace of classic aircraft. You might be interested in my posts on P-51s, and on getting to ride in a B-17
