Graduated from the T-34A to the T-28A at Bartow Air Base in FL. My first impressions were that it vibrated a lot and sounded like a Tractor at taxi speed. Soon came to love it!
Comments about it being forgiving are only partially true. If slightly out of rigging, it was very difficult to recover from a spin, and we had several engine failures (including me) I understand the comment about under powered compared to the Navy version. Bartow is not far by air from Pensacola NAS. Navy student pilots took great delight in forcing USAF student pilots out over the Gulf of Mexico, and then speeding away in their much faster T-28B. Got even sometime later when I got stationed on a Naval Air Station!

I flew the T-28A as part of my training as a USAF Aviation Cadet at Vance AFB, Oklahoma, during the winter of 1954/55.
All of us loved the aircraft for a number of reasons. It was a joy to fly with no bad habits at all (which may be the reason it didn't stay in the inventory long; airplanes with no bad habits are not good for teaching flying skills).
It was the easiest airplane to land that I ever flew. Everyone appreciated the efficient heater as we flew through the winter skies. It was fully aerobatic. The only fault was that it was woefully underpowered compared to the Navy's B model with their R-1820 of 1300 horses.
