The North American Aviation T-28 Trojan is a piston-engined military trainer aircraft used by the United States Air Force and United States Navy beginning in the 1950s. Besides its use as a trainer, the T-28 was successfully employed as a counter-insurgency aircraft, primarily during the Vietnam War. It has continued in civilian use as an aerobatics and Warbird performer. 

Le North American Aviation T-28 Trojan est un avion d'entrainement à moteur à pistons utilisé par l'armée de l'air et la marine nord américaines depuis le début des années 50. En complément de son rôle d'entrainement, le T-28 a également servi d'avion de secours, par exemple au cours de la guerre du Vietnam. Aujourd'hui il continue sa carrière comme avion de voltige et performeur "Warbird".
