The Northrop T-38 Talon is a twin-engine, high-altitude, supersonic jet trainer used by the United States Air Force (USAF) and NASA. Introduced in the late 1950s, the T-38 was the world's first supersonic training aircraft and has been instrumental in training generations of military pilots, including astronauts for NASA.

Known for its sleek design, speed, and agility, the T-38 requires pilots to think and react quickly, making it an ideal training platform for high-performance military aircraft. Its variants include the T-38A and T-38C, with the latter undergoing avionics and systems updates for continued effectiveness in training. The T-38 Talon has also been used for various other roles, including test pilot training, research flights, and safety chase for other aircraft. The Northrop T-38 Talon's legacy as a premier training aircraft, its role in developing skilled pilots, and its continued use make it a subject of great interest for aviation enthusiasts and model collectors, particularly those interested in military training aircraft and the evolution of jet aviation training.
