Beechcraft T-34B Mentor
@ Half Moon Bay Airport, Half Moon Bay, CA
This immaculate T-34 lifts off to return to home base after a day of static display at the annual Pacific Coast Dream Machines show in Half Moon Bay. First flown in 1948, Mentors provided basic flight training for the USAF, Navy & Marines, replacing the venerable T-6 Texan. These aircraft continue to see use under U.S. Navy control as part of flying clubs at naval air stations and marine corps air stations. Nikon D7000 w/80-400mm with processing with Aperture.
