Turbo Mentor in Vintage Livery

15 February 2017
110113-N-8891L-002 WHITING FIELD, Fla. (Jan. 13, 2011) A unique T-34 "Turbo Mentor" passes in front of several other T-34s painted in the current orange and white colors. The aircraft's grey and yellow paint scheme, with Marine markings, are a part of the Centennial of Naval Aviation's 2011 celebration. At least one aircraft of each type in the Navy inventory will be painted to replicate a design from aviation history. This version dates back to the 1930s, and is the fourth historically painted aircraft received by Naval Air Station Whiting Field. (U.S. Navy photo by 2nd Lt. Molly LeBlanc/Released)

As naval aviation prepares for its 100th year anniversary in 2011, more than 20 aircrafts in the fleet will receive the World War II paint to commemorate the Centennial of Naval Aviation including fixed and rotary aircraft. These aircrafts will be statically placed within The Chief of Naval Air Training Command as a reminder of the contributions and sacrifices of Navy Aviators past and present as well as our Marine Corps and Coast Guard Aviators.
