North American XSN2J / SN2J / NA-142
The North American XSN2J-1, also known by the company designation NA-142, was developed for the United States Navy by North American Aviation as a replacement for the SNJ Texan as an advanced scout-trainer.
Designed in competition with the Fairchild XNQ, the XSN2J-1 first flew on 15 February 1947, two aircraft being evaluated by the Navy (121449 and 121450) as XSN2J-1. Neither aircraft were considered satisfactory in evaluations; in addition, restrictions on the Navy's budget meant that the aircraft could not be ordered at the time, and the program was cancelled in 1948.
The similar T-28 Trojan would later be ordered to fill the Navy's requirement for a new trainer.
