—Air Power Park Tour —

Beginning in June 1943, after development of the Lockheed F-80 Shooting Star, the need for a high-performance trainer aircraft with seen. The resulting T-33 T-Bird was basically an F-80 as shown here with an extended fuselage to allow for a second seat. In addition to its role as a trainer, some airframes were modified for reconnaissance missions.

This T-33 trainer built by Lockheed Aircraft was accepted by the Air Force on April 28, 1953. Its career existed of only two Air Training Command units - one at Wichita AFB in Kansas and the other at Perrin AFB in Texas. It was sent to the NASA/Langley Research Center in November 1961 and was retired from service in January 1963.
