The collectible model T-28B Trojan represents the first post-war trainer used by the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Navy. The T-28BTrojan also saw combat duty as ground attack aircraft.

The T-28 Trojan first flew in September 1949, and the type stayed in U.S. service for more than 30 years. Powered by a Wright R-1300 radial engine in Air Force service as the T-28B, and a more powerful Wright R-1820 radial in Navy service, the T-28B, the Trojan entered service in 1950.
Designed to replace the aging T-6 Texans, the powerful performance of the T-28 made useful as a ground attack and counter-insurgency aircraft.
The T-28 Trojan was phased out of U.S. Air Force training by the early 1960s, it continued in Navy use until 1984, when it was replaced by the T-34C Turbo Mentor.
