Birdseye view of a T-Bird
The Lockheed T-33 Shooting Star (aka "T-Bird") is an American-built jet trainer aircraft. It was produced by Lockheed and made its first flight in 1948. The T-33 was developed from the Lockheed P-80/F-80 starting as TP-80C/TF-80C in development, then designated T-33A. Despite its vintage, the venerable T-33 still remains in service worldwide. This one is owned by the Collings Foundation.
