Ryan S-T-4 YPT-25

08/15/2008. Remarks by Johan Visschedijk: "The five YPT-25s built, s/n 42-8703 to 42-8707, c/n 1775 to 1779, were almost entirely of plastic-bonded wood as a result of a request to convert the all-metal PT-22 trainer to non-strategic materials. The prevailing aluminum shortage did not materialize and production was not undertaken."
