Description

In the late 1940s, Beechcraft submitted a design for a two-seat trainer to serve as a lower-cost alternative to the venerable T-6 Texan. The original concept was based upon the Model 35 V-tailed Bonanza, but this was replaced by a conventional tail that would find its way to the Model 36. The four-place fuselage was replaced by a tandem trainer arrangement while the wings, though they appeared identical to the Model 35/36 wings, were strengthened for +10g to -4.5g loads (aerobatic flight). The T-34A and B were both piston-powered trainers that were very similar in appearance though the US Navy B-model had a triangular notch under the rudder while the USAF A-model had a fixed fairing in that space. The A- and B- models had other subtle differences: the A-model's engine was carburetored, the B was fuel injected. The A-model had a steerable nose wheel, B-model steering was with differential braking. The list goes on, but other than the notch under the rudder and the paint job, the A- and B-models were visibly identical. The T-34C was a follow-on production version that arose in the 1970s to replace the piston power with a PT-6 turboprop engine. The C-model had other visible differences in the wings and the ventral strakes under the tail.
