North American T-28 Trojan - Odd and Ends

North American T-28 Trojan - Odds and Ends
Original Database:
Last Update: 10 April 2010

This database is a work in progress. The careers of various North American T-28 airframes are very obscure indeed. A healthy amount of confusion exists regarding some of the airframes, so if you have any additional information, comments or corrections, please click on the "Contact Us" button above, and drop us a line - thanks very much.



CUBAN AIR FORCE
Note: A number of ex-USAF T-28A Trojans were intended for use by the Cuban Air Force’s Escuela Aviacion Militar. Apparently only four T-28A airframes made it to the island in 1958, before an embargo was placed on the island by the United States.

DOMINICAN REPUBLIC AIR FORCE
Note: This air arm operated a small fleet of seven North American T-28 Trojans and Nomads. Apparently four were T-28A Trojan airframes flown by the Escuela de Aviacion Militar, while the remaining three were T-28D Nomad airframes flown by the Escuadron de Combate. Other records indicate that all the Dominican T-28s were actually T-28D models.

North American T-28A Trojan:
2801, Former USAF S/N 49-1513, notes: Delivered in 1963. Later sold as HI-315. U.S. civil registration N300AF.

2806, Former USAF XX-XXXX, notes: Delivered in 1964.
2807, Former USAF XX-XXXX, notes: Delivered in 1964.



ECUADORAN AIR FORCE
Note: Records indicate that the Ecuadoran Air Force operated 10 North American T-28A Trojan airframes, and 10 North American T-28D Nomad airframes. The T-28A models were flown by Escuadron de Caza-Bombardeo 2112, while the T-28D airframes were flown by Escuadron de Combate 2113. As of the last update, the identities and Serial Numbers of these airframes are not certain. However, all were apparently delivered in 1968.

North American T-28D Nomad:



HAITIAN AIR FORCE
Note: Certain records indicate that all of the Haiti Air Force T-28s were former French Sud Aviation Fennec airframes. All were delivered in October of 1973, and eventually all were sold within the United States in March 1978. They were operated by the Escadre de Combat.

HONDURAN AIR FORCE (Fuerza Aera Hondurena)
Note: This is rather confusing, but records indicate that the Honduran Air Force flew both the North American T-28A and T-28B Trojans and perhaps the Sud Aviation Fennec. The aircraft were operated by the Escuela Militar de Aviacion.
All the Sud Aviation Fennecs were former Royal Moroccan Air Force airframes. Records indicate that the former Royal Moroccan Air Force Fennec airframes never made it to Honduras, rather they were impounded whilst transiting Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
