Fly the Buckeye
The North American T-2 Buckeye was the United States Navy's intermediate training aircraft, intended to introduce Student Naval Aviators to jets. It entered service in 1959, and was replaced by the T-45 Goshawk in 2008. The trainer established an outstanding record of safety and reliability while providing training for more than 11,000 students to pilot 18 different models of Navy jet aircraft. The T-2 was also capable of functioning as a light attack aircraft by installing an armament package.
