Former Army T-28 Trojan walk around

The original T-28A built for the USAF as a T-6 replacement had a 800hp engine, but the later T-28B/C for the Navy was significantly more powerful, with a 1,425hp powerplant. this was later retrofitted to some USAF aircraft which became T-28D Nomads. The US Army also operated some Trojans, including this example shown under restoration.
