Lockheed T-33A-5-LO Shooting Star
The T-33 was the only jet trainer in the U.S. Air Force inventory from 1948 until 1957. The Museum's aircraft has never been painted and has a highly polished natural metal finish. Used primarily as a training aircraft, all guns have been removed.  The aircraft is on display at the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center.
