FS2004 USAF Lockheed T-33A 58-0510 (textures only), 49th FIS Griffiss AFB, NY circa 1986. Developed from Lockheed's F-80 Shooting Star fighter, this rather simple trainer conversion went on to be one of the most successful jet trainers in history, with over 5000 made. License production in Canada and Japan added a few hundred more. It's hard to find a nation who didn't fly the T-Bird at one time or another. This T-Bird is in the markings of 58-0510, assigned to the 49th Fighter Interceptor Squadron at Griffiss AFB, NY circa 1986. Crew Chief: TSgt R.L. Sisco Pilot: 2Lt Paul Lockhart (now Lt Col and two time pilot of the Space Shuttle.) By R.L. Sisco, MSgt, USAF, Retired.
