Northrop’s T-38 Talon was the world’s first supersonic trainer aircraft, and remains in
service today in air forces worldwide. It entered service in 1961, and quickly set climb records,... More > earning it the nickname “white rocket”. Nearly 1200 Talons were produced before the last one rolled off the assembly line in 1972. Capable of a speed of Mach 1.3, and a climb rate approaching
34,000 feet per minute, the T-38’s performance was sufficient to warrant service as the USAF Thunderbirds’ aircraft in the mid-1970s. Its primary role however, was as a dedicated training and proficiency platform. More than 50,000 USAF, NASA and NATO pilots have flown the Talon, a record that may never be matched. Originally printed by the U.S. Air Force and Northrop, this handbook for the T-38 provides a fascinating glimpse inside the cockpit of this famous aircraft. Originally classified “restricted”, the manual was recently declassified and is here reprinted in book form.< Less
