Author’s note.  This book is a natural progression of many years of research on the T-28 that I originally compiled into an extensive website.  I decided it was time to give my work a more permanent reflection rather than the transient nature of the internet.  Although I still plan on maintaining the website but in a much-reduced capacity, primarily as a link to this book and my other books.  The website remains an excellent canvas for photographs, videos, numerous documents' and links to other resources.  Follow my journey unraveling the enigma of the T-28 uncovering its clandestine operations and how it came to be a warbird – book version coming soon.


Book description.  From concept to production, to its cross utilization, this story follows the ubiquitous yet humble military trainer into its tour of duty as a bona fide warbird in foreign lands.  After the wars end and replaced by new trainers, the old T-28s are struck off charge and shuffled to the “Boneyard.”   They soon rise with a new purpose for civilian pilots eager to acquire an affordable warbird.  Under the auspices of new caretakers and proud ownership, many T-28s have been restored, flying as living history honoring its military legacy.  The T-28’s tour of duty continues.
