The T-46 was a light jet trainer aircraft of the 1980s. It was the winner of the U.S. Air Force's competition to build a trainer to replace the Cessna T-37 and featured a side by side configuration, a twin tail, ejection seats, pressurization and two turbofan engines. The T-46 first flew on Oct. 15, 1985, but was cancelled a little more than a year later.
