While we don’t own one ourselves at the CAF SoCal Wing, a number of our members personally own T-34 “Mentor” trainers.
They often fly with us in formation, such as when we use our PBJ bomber to do a flyover of a UCLA or USC or Rams football game.
I think they were practicing formation flight yesterday. Whatever it was, there were three of them lined up on our ramp and looking great.
The T-34 was built in the 1950’s to train our military pilots and used through the 1960’s.
It’s a nice plane.
