The Boeing T-43 is a modified Boeing 737-200 used by the US Air Force. Delivered during 1973 and 1974, the primary mission of the T-43 is as a flying classroom for Navigator training. It has stations onboard for twelve navigator students, six instructors, as well as pilot and co-pilot.

Externally the T-43 differs from the civilian aircraft by having more antennas, fewer windows and five periscope sextant stations for celestial navigation. Other navigation systems fitted include mapping radar, TACAN, inertial navigation, a radar altimeter and others.

Twelve aircraft of the nineteen originally ordered are still in service for the Air Force in their original role, based at Randolph Air Force Base in Texas, while two are used for similar purposes by the Air National Guard. In addition, one has been modified to a transport aircraft, classified CT-43, and used by US Southern Command for commander transport in South America.
