Pretty bird! Also an F-80 Shooting Star I think.

It is a T-33. The T-33 was a P-80 (or F-80) Shooting Star that had a 22 in. (I think) extension of the fuselage. This can be seen just under the Thunderbird decal. This made room for a second seat.There were very few other changes, and some even had the gun ports on either side of the nose simply covered with small patches of sheet metal.

Thanks for the clarification.

Fantastic looking aircraft, and shots of it. BEAUTIFUL! :-)
I found this bit of info about them on wikipedia, so take it with a grain of salt. I found it interesting. ;-)a

Great shots! Who owns this bird and do they ever fly it at airshows?

Very nice shots!


When you see my camera gear you'll think I'm a pro.
When you see my photos you'll know that I'm not.
