Lockheed T-33 Shooting Star

Developed from Lockheed’s P/F-80 Shooting Star, the first operational jet aircraft in the U.S. Air Force, it was used to train pilots already qualified to fly propeller-driven aircraft. First flown in 1948 and in production until 1959, it became the most widely used advanced jet trainer in the world. The Museum’s T-33 was flown by helicopter to Martin State Airport in 1994.
