2020 Aircraft

Aircraft will be added here for 2020 as they are announced.

 

                                       

North American T-28 Trojans
18.2.19


First flown in 1949, the Trojan was designed as a replacement  trainer to the venerable Harvard. Used by both the USAF and US Navy the type also saw service in the counter-insurgency role in Vietnam and the Congo. During the 1960s the T-28 was successfully employed as a counter-insurgency aircraft, primarily during the Vietnam War.

The Trojan has a Wright R-1820 radial engine and packs a noisy punch.  A delight to fly, it can out climb a Mustang to 10,000 feet.  In 2020 a Trojan pair will be flying in a formation display, a first for New Zealand.
