North American T28 Trojan
The North America T-28 was designed just after WWII primarily as a trainer for the F-86 Sabre but also proved itself to be a potent counter-insurgency and ground attack platform during the Vietnam War.
The aircraft has remarkable performance, very similar to the P-51 Mustang, and tremendous handling characteristics. Its primary asset, however, is unquestionably the view from the cockpit; with a high seating position and large canopy you really can see everything!
This aircraft is in immaculate condition and benefits from a freshly overhauled engine, which combined with is excellent maintenance status and very low airframe hours, presents to market a truly exceptional example!
