Three U.S. Navy T-6B
WHITING FIELD, Fla. (June 21, 2016) Three U.S. Navy T-6B "Texan II" aircraft assigned to Training Air Wing FIVE, fly over Naval Air Station Whiting Field in Milton, Florida. Aircraft 166010 is the first T-6B delivered to the United States Navy on August 25, 2009 and aircraft 166260 is the 148th and final T-6B delivered to TRAWING-5 by Beechcraft Defense Company, a subsidiary of Textron Aviation. Since replacing the venerable Beechcraft T-34C "Turbo Mentor" and achieving initial operating capability in April 2010 at Naval Air Station Whiting Field, the T-6B has proven to be a highly dependable turboprop trainer whose primary mission is to train future Navy, Coast Guard and Marine Corps aviators. The three aircraft performed three flyovers of the base before landing to highlight the milestone. (U.S. Navy photo by Ensign Antonio More')
