Flaps down, aluminum gleaming, this polished T-28A Trojan reflects the sun, the sky and even itself. The promise and glory of flight seethes from every rivet on this aircraft’s metal skin. From 1950s to the mid-80s many an Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps aviator flew this high performance trainer on the way to bigger and faster aircraft.
Yes, it's a trainer, but it's hardly a quiet, retiring schoolmarm. The Trojan, with a Wright R-1300 engine, had a top speed that often exceeded 280 mph. In 1962, North Americans began building Trojans for a combat, counter-insurgency mission. Six under wing hard-points were added in order for the aircraft to accept a variety of weapons. This version of the T-28 saw action in both Southeast Asia and North Africa. - WSP

ABOUT EMAILING FOR PRICE:
1. Once an item is "sold out" and only available thru "secondary" or "resale" sources, pricing can vary day by day or hour by hour as resales occur. In such instances, the prices you see on our website may represent the last of those items sold as opposed to today's price. That is why we often tell you to "email" for pricing. And that is why prices often change without notice.
2. We apologize that there are some artists who do not allow on-line listings of their prices.
In either event, when you email for pricing, you must include your phone number and location. We'll get back to you quickly.
If you are having difficulty using our "email for price" or "bid" forms, please call us or switch to another internet browser (Chrome, Edge, Firefox, etc.)
