t 28d 140x80When the USAF set out to replace the aging  North American Texan, the T-28A Trojan was designed, and it’s initial flight was in 1949.  Several years later the T-28B was designed for the Navy and Marine Corps.  In 1962, in a ground support role, the T-28D carried no less than six under wing hardpoints.  
The MAM’s Trojan is a D model which saw service in Zaire, Africa and it is painted to represent a B model in Navy colors.  The Navy used the Trojan well into the 1980’s for flight training.
