A test pilot checks the tail end of a T-45A Goshawk aircraft prior to an evaluation flight.  The Navy will eventually procure about 300 of these aircraft to replace the T-2C Buckeye and TA-4J Skyhawk trainer aircraft.  The T-45A, which is capable of landing aboard aircraft carriers, will be used for intermediate and advanced student pilot training
