The Fuji T-1 was Japan's first jet-powered trainer aircraft. The first flight was in January 1958. A total of 66 T-1 planes were built. It was retired in March 2006.

Design and development

The T-1 was the first indigenously designed Japanese jet aircraft to be developed since World War II. Although a new-design aircraft, it was modeled on the F-86 Sabre airframe. The T-1A was powered by the British-designed Bristol Siddeley Orpheus turbojet, while the T-1B used the Ishikawajima-Harima J3 turbojet.
