Revell 1/48 T-28B Trojan "The Flying Bulls" Plastic Model Kit
The North American Aviation T-28 Trojan is a piston-engined military trainer aircraft used by the United States Air Force and United States Navy beginning in the 1950s. Besides its use as a trainer, the T-28 was successfully employed as a Counter-insurgency (COIN) aircraft, primarily during the Vietnam War.
Built by North America in 1954 the aerobatic T-28B was also used by the U.S. Navy as a training aircraft in Washington DC until 1965. The aircraft featured in this package was subsequently sold to a private owner in Texas who restored it. In the mid 1980™s and only after tough negotiations the former Flying Bulls Chief Pilot Sigi Angerer was able to purchase the aircraft. This aircraft was the beginning and nucleus of the Flying Bulls collection of airworthy vintage aircraft. Together with other exhibits the T-28B can usually be admired in Hangar 7 at Salzburg Airport “ and of course always in the air at many major air-shows around Europe.
