Sightings: U.S. Navy T-34C Turbo Mentors at St. Louis Downtown Airport

By Carmelo Turdo
Two Beech T-34C Turbo Mentors stopped into St. Louis Downtown Airport for fuel on a cross-country training flight today.  It was a great day to practice crosswind landings, and the crews did a nice job on their landings.  The aircraft were from TAW-4 (Training Air Wing 4) at NAS Corpus Christi, TX.  Witnessing U.S. Navy Turbo Mentors in their red and white training colors is becoming more rare as these aircraft are phased out of service, and the visit was a real treat for the airport.  Here are some views of the aircraft as they arrived:
