It was purchased fromt he new Ziare government (that followed the Belgium Congo) brought back to the US to be one of the first BOG ENGINE, (1425 hp) T28s is civilian hands. It is painted in the 50th Anniversary Celebration Paint Scheme of Naval Aviation as one was a Meridian NAS of VT7…no longer an abused aircraft carrier trainer, expendable bomber/strafer fighter, but now a celebrated rememberence of T28s pilots and planes of the past.
