The Mitsubishi T-2 is a two-engined two-seat jet trainer manufactured by Mitsubishi Heavy
Industries and was operated by the Japan Air Self Defense Force from 1975 – 2006. The
flight instructor sat behind the student in a raised seat that allowed him to visually monitor the
student’s actions. There was a windblast screen between them that created separate
clamshell canopies for each person. T-2s were also used by a dedicated Aggressor
Squadrons until they were replaced by F-15 Eagle.


The Mitsubishi T-2 Trainer was used by the 4th Kokudan (Wing) / 21st Hikotai (Fighter
Training Squadron) at Mitsushima, AB to train pilots for the Mitsubishi F-2 Fighter that had
been developed from the T-2. In 2003 the T-2s began to be retired so the 21st Hikotai
painted one of the T-2s in a special scheme. It had two purposes; one to mark 28 years using
the T-2 and the 40th anniversary of the 21st Squadron. The last T-2 retired in March 2006.
