The last seven T-37 Tweet trainer aircraft in the Air Force inventory, including the two shown here, took off one final time from Sheppard AFB, Tex., en route to their final resting places in the Arizona and Utah deserts as part of the T-37’s retirement ceremony, July 31, 2009.

The T-6 Texan II replaces the Tweet in those roles.
