I was in Class 56-R getting Primary Flight Training at Stallings in PA-18s and T-6s.The picture is of T-28s used in Basic Training, which included jet training in the T-33. Class 56-R was the last Class to Fly the T-6 in Primary. The T-28 the was phased in after that and the "Tweetie Bird" T-37 replaced them in Basic Training.

Circa 1952- The USAF operated a training squadron at Stallings Field in the early 50's. The field was constructed during WWII by the US Marine Corps. When the USAF began training operations from the field in 1951 it was named Stallings Field in honor of two brothers from Grainger, NC who were killed serving in the US Army Air Corps during WWII.
