Randy Winn - 1954 North American T-28C

The original Trojan, as it became known, had a frameless canopy and a Wright R-1300 engine. After test and evaluation, the Air Force eventually ordered 1,194 T-28s. The United Sates Navy and Marine Corps also adopted the T-28 ordering it with the more-powerful Wright R-1820-86 engine (1425 hp). 489 standardized versions T-28Bs and 299 T-28Cs were produced for the Navy. The C models were fitted with an arrester gear for carrier-deck landing training.

In 1962, North American began supplying T-28Ds for the counter-insurgency role. Six under wing hard points were added in order for the aircraft to accept a variety of weapons. The T-28 saw action in both Southeast Asia and North Africa. The attack trainer version of the T-28D was called the AT-28D. France's Sud-Aviation converted over 240 T-28Ds into Fennecs and used them as replacements for their Algerian-based T-6s. Fennecs performed admirably in the close-support, reconnaissance and patrol roles.

The T-28's service career, though long, was finally ended by the introduction of the T-34 turboprop trainer, but the T-28 lives on as one of the most popular piston-powered warbirds in the USA, as well as several other countries.
