T-7A Red Hawk Takes Its First Flight

Share on

The T-7A Red Hawk soared through the sky on June 28, 2023 completing its official inaugural flight with the US Air Force.

Following previous US Air Force flights of the grey-tailed production representative jets (PRJ), a US Air Force pilot flew for the first time the red-tailed engineering and manufacturing development (EMD) aircraft and demonstrated the power and agility of the advanced trainer.

The jet’s vibrant red tail is a tribute to the Tuskegee Airmen, the first African American US military aviators, who flew their red-tailed fighters during World War II. –boeing/adj/mhi (Pix: Boeing via Youtube screenshot)
