T-33 Shooting Star (multiple)

T-33A Shooting Star x (March AFB 04-11-18) 7805

I took photos of T-33 Shooting Star examples at IWM Duxford in 2008, the NASM Udvar-Hazy in 2015, the Pima Air&Space Museum in 2017, and at March AFB in 2018. The example in Tuscon was used in the movie Jet Pilot starring John Wayne and Janet Leigh. The example at the Imperial War Museum in Duxford actually is a French Air Force veteran painted in USAF markings. The NMoUSAF has one of the special NT-33A versions.

The Canadian-built version CT-133 Silver Star is on a separate page.
