HISTORY

  • The North American Aviation company manufactured the T-28 Trojan and several variants during the years1949 through 1963 in Inglewood and Downey, California. It was designed to replace the AT-6 trainer of WW II fame and as a transition trainer for pilots into jet aircraft.
  • Later versions were produced for use as a counter-in-surgency (COIN) fighter aircraft and exported to South Vietnam and South American countries. Some were exported to France and designated as FENNEC aircraft.
  • Approximately 1,986 aircraft were produced and modified as needed. Of these, 299 were made as the T-28C Trojan and delivered to the U.S. Navy. It was equipped with an arresting gear and designed as a trainer for carrier operations.
  • The T-28C Trojan aircraft is on display at Planes of Fame Air Museum at Valle-Grand Canyon Airport, Arizona.
