NORTH AMERICAN T-2 BUCKEYE
Title: North American T-2 Buckeye
The T-2 was produced to a US Navy requirement for a multi-role jet trainer and combined proven components from previous North American aircraft. The wing was modified from the FJ-1 Fury design and the control system was derived from the T-28. The first variant, the T-2A, flew in 1958 and utilised a single J34 turbojet engine of 3,400 lbs thrust. The next variant, the T-2B, used two J60 turbojets of 3,000 lbs thrust, while the final variant, the T-2C, utilised two J85 engines of 3,000 lbs thrust.
231 T-2C’s were built and these served for over 30 years until replaced by the T-45. Examples were also exported to Venezuela (T-2D) and Greece (T-2E).
This title contains the flight manuals for all three US Navy versions of the T2. The flight manuals have been scanned from the original manuals.
