August 17-18, 2013- Wings Over Camarillo
North American T-28 Trojan
Trojan was built as a replacement to the well-known AT-6
Texan. The Air Force were the first to purchase them. Before
long, the Navy and Marine Corps also established interest in
these great trainers. Different models would follow with
bigger engines in the B model on up. The C model offered an
arresting hook for carrier landings. The D model added
underwing hard-points to be able to hang a variety of weapons.
The D models were used in Southeast Asia for
counter-insurgency missions. The French also ordered a number
of T-28s and called them the Fennec.
