Rockwell T2 Buckeye

[BACK]

 

Built as a result of a US Navy study into pilot training which had identified the need for an aircraft capable of taking a student that had graduated from the ab initio phase through to the point of initial carrier qualifications.  The original A models where under powered  with a single engine and the design was quickly modified for two engines (B models).  The C models had an engine change to the less powerful GE J85.  A total of 529 of all types were built.  The a/c is currently being replaced by the T-45 Goshawk.
