The two-seater T-33 was developed as a variant of Lockheed's P-80 fighter. The fuselage was lengthened by a little over three feet and a second seat for an instructor was added. In service for over 50 years, the T-33, known as the Shooting Star or T-Bird, was used by the U.S. Air Force as an advanced trainer and to train pilots already qualified to fly propeller-driven aircraft.

In the early 1960s, the T-33 was replaced by the T-37 and T-38 Talon in the USAF's undergraduate pilot training program; however, the aircraft continued to be used as a utility aircraft and proficiency trainer into the 1980s.

The T-33 was used by many air forces as a trainer and by some countries as a light attack aircraft.
