The Beech T-34 Mentor
was the post-war trainer that replaced the AT-6 Texan. It was
durable and reliable. They are based on the popular Beechcraft
Bonanza. T-34s were flown by the Army, Navy and Air Force as
well as several foreign countries. The T-34C Mentors (turbine
powered) are being phased out, to be replaced by the Texan II.
The T-34s in these formations are all B and C models. I've
always been a big fan of the mentor. Great job, guys!
