I was a Naval Academy midshipman in the early 1980s. Part of our summer training package was to go to Pensacola and fly this jet trainer. I was the final flight of the day with my Instructor Pilot who was a SERGRAD (Selectively Retained Graduate). I got extra time and spent about an hour looping through clouds with him. I cannot recall his name but heard that within a year or so he was killed in a single seat aircraft mishap (must have been an A-7) off the boat.

Going through JSUNT at NAS Pensacola as an Air Force guy, flying the Buckeyes weren't part of our syllabus. I lucky enough to get the chance to beg rides in the T-2 about a dozen times. They were simple, straight forward fun jets. From start up to taxi was a few minutes and every ride was either aerobatics, air-to-air or formation dive bombing patterns. I was greatly appreciative for the chance to fly these jets. What a wonderful aircraft. Too bad they're ending their service but I suppose after all these decades of use the T-2 is ready to rest. Hopefuly the civilian market will get a fw someday.
