The T-33 Shooting Star is a jet trainer aircraft produced by Lockheed and piloted by Tony Levier. The T-33 was originally designated as the TF-80C and its maiden was on March 22, 1948. In the 1980s, the T-33 served as currency trainers, drone towing, combat and tactical simulation training, ""hack"" aircraft, electronic countermeasures and warfare training and test platforms. There was an attempt to modify and modernize the T-33 as the Boeing Skyfox, but the project was cancelled due to lack orders.
This handcrafted model is painted in the same paint scheme as the original and is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen. Perfect as a gift for any aviation enthusiast and history buff!
