Northrop T-38N Talon Hoisted to Flight Deck

The Museum’s newest aircraft, the Northrop T-38N Talon, was hoisted to Intrepid’s flight deck in front of a crowd of special guests Wednesday morning!

The Talon was designed in the mid-1950s for the U.S. Air Force, which wanted a new supersonic jet trainer. The Northrop Corporation (now Northrop Grumman) demonstrated that a smaller design, using two small jet engines, was more economical than the larger types produced by other manufacturers. The resulting T-38A Talon met the needs of the U.S. Air Force and went into service in 1961—it still serves today.
