Photographer's Remark

Civil registered as JA3096 on import in 1954, this one-off T-28 was acquired by the Japan Defense Agency in 1956 for technical reserach. In 1962 it was converted for reconnaissance training but suffered a heavy landing at Utsunomiya the year after. After use as an instructional airframe it went on display when the museum opened in 1999
