Northrop T-38

The Northrop T-38 Talon stands as a twinjet supersonic jet training aircraft, originating from the initial N-156 project. This development emerged after a series of discussions with General Electric Aviation, which proposed a lightweight yet powerful engine for use in future aircraft. Subsequently, an agreement was reached to develop a lightweight fighter equipped with General Electric J85 engines. In the mid-1950s, the aircraft underwent modifications to meet a trainer requirement issued by the U.S. Air Force, eventually receiving the designation T-38 Talon. The Talon holds the distinction of being the world’s first supersonic trainer, remaining in production and active service to this day.
