This is a line up of T-28s facing the dawn for the recent Warbirds Downunder Show at Temora Aviation Museum, November 2nd, 2013. The sound when they all started up was bowel-loosening!What a fantastic weekend it was! We camped on the airport with a couple of thousand other absolute aviation geeks – and I swear I could still smell avgas in my nostrils the day after I got home. Temora itself is a friendly little town in country New South Wales, Australia, that’s population trebles during the show. They take it all in their stride, with a welcome smile for all comers.The Trojans are (from closest to farthest):• T-28D “Mekong Moon” – registered VH-ZUK, cn 174-374, first assigned #51-7521• T-28D “Just Dreamin’” – registered VH-ZUC, cn 174-429, first assigned #51-7576• T-28B “Miss Stress” – registered VH-ZSH, cn 200-106• T-28A “Littl Juggs” – registered VH-VBT, cn 171-27, first assigned #50-0221• T-28D “DP-232” – registered VH-DPT, cn 200-303, first assigned #55-138232
Truly the T-28’s are thunderous machines. I can feel my whole body rumble when they fire those massive radials up…thanks to Mr. Foxx for the submission, and be sure to check out Airscape Magazine, which is available through a lovely app on iOS and Android devices.
