USAF announces plans to scrap its remaining 110 T-3A Firefly training aircraft, which had been grounded formally since Oct. 9, 1999 following failed attempts to ensure airworthiness. The service had suspended T-3A operations in July 1997 after three fatal accidents. USAF planned to replace its T-41 pre-pilot flight screening aircraft with the British-made trainer and had received 113 aircraft from 1993-1995.
