Some Buckeye's escaped being scrapped. This A-coded NAS Meridian (MS) aircraft was seen at the flightline of Kingsville (TX) and was Struck Off Charge on 03 April 2003. This SOC was done at the National Museum of Naval Aviation at Pensacola (FL). It is reported as stored since that day at the museum and will eventually being displayed there or at another location.
The A-coded training aircraft of the US Navy belong to Training Wing ONE, based at NAS Meridian (MS). But this A-coded Buckeye was seen at the flight line of Kingsville (TX). In these days, many aircraft swapped units and wings after a maintenance or overhaul service.
Training Wing TWO had two Buckeye squadrons on strength, Training Squadron (VT) 21 and VT-22, but squadron markings were rarely used as the aircraft of the wing acted in a pool. Most T-2Cs have been replaced by the T-45 Goshawk.
