America has trained many fine aviators and pilots thanks to training in the T-34.

Indeed! And it's a tough aircraft.. I had an instructor tell me once (when I was working line) that the T-34 that they we're flying had been crashed 3 times! He said the new Texan II's are less forgiving..

I flew them for about three years down in Pensacola Fla, VT-10 & VT-4. Being primarily a "Heavy" driver, B-52G, and KC-10A, the T-34 was a kick in the pants! (Yes I was an AF guy flying Navy airplanes!) Very basic aircraft with manual trim, but the PT-6 was plenty of engine for that airframe. I only wished it had an ILS. The Navy believed in PAR's for their precision approaches. Great aerobatic aircraft. Spins were easy both to get into and recover from. Got a little hot in the summer time especially sitting in the rear cockpit waiting for the student to run through all the preflight and start checklist. An experienced guy could jump in and have the prop spinning within 3 minutes! I believe all the active duty T-34c's are gone. Would be a wonderful private aircraft if it weren't for the cost. I heard they were worth about 1.5 million if you could even find one to buy.

Sure that's a T-34?
The one's my uncle and dad took me up in had a piston engine! Ole well maybe I need new glasses but that sure looks like a turbine to me!

Just saying!

Wasn't the original T-34built by Beechcraft?
It was more like a A_36 Bonanza with inline seats!

The original T-34 was a piston powered aircraft and was based on the Beech 35 Bonanza airframe. This one is the later model T-34C, it has the Pratt & Whitney PT6 turboprop engine.

sleekest version of the T-34 is the Fuji T-7 used by the JASDF
