A couple of T-28 Trojan’s flew into Danbury Airport today, and I was able to obtain some pretty good shots. I thought I would make this a “history of the plane” blog post instead of a “behind the photo” blog post. The T-28 Trojan is a Vietnam War era training aircraft that was designed to replace the T-6 Texan. There were 1,948 of these planes produced between the years of 1950 and 1957. There are 10 different variants of the aircraft to suit the job that it was called on to do.
What you see in the first image is a T-28A Trojan in U.S. Air Force paint. The second image is a T-28C Trojan in U.S. Marine paint. It is equipped with a tail hook for landing on aircraft carriers.
