Constructed in 1956, this North American T-28C Trojan was assigned to Naval Training Squadron 27 (VT-27), the Boomers, stationed in Corpus Christi, TX. It served in VT-27 from 1956 to 1974, teaching Naval Aviators field carrier landings and carrier landings on the USS Lexington. In 1974 she was transferred to the Military Aircraft Storage and Disposal Center, where it remained until 1978, when it was transferred to the Georgia Historical Aviation Museum in Stone Mountain, Georgia. In 1993, she was transferred to the Air Classics Museum at the Dupage Airport in Chicago, IL. In 1995, she was transferred to a civilian owner in Jackson Hole, WY, and has had a few civilian owners since that time. In November of 2023, she was acquired by Steven Rodemer of Colorado Springs, CO, where she is based. Today, she performs in airshows across the country as both static and flight displays, including EAA Airventure, Sun’n Fun, the Moses Lake Airshow, and of course the Pikes Peak Regional Airshow.



Proceeds from the air show benefit these three museums in Colorado Springs that are dedicated to the education of future generations through the preservation of our nation’s military heritage.
