Titles: Lockheed T-33 Shooting Star No’s 1 and 2

The T-33 was two-seat trainer development of the P-80 Shooting Star, the first operational US jet fighter. It was designed by Clarence Johnson and first flew in 1948. It was extremely successful, over 5,000 being built and it was operated by more than 30 air forces.

We offer two titles which include flight manuals for the T-33. Each title is US$9.95. The first title covers USAF variants, and the second title covers Canadian jet trainers which includes the T-33 assembled in Canada and fitted with the RR Nene engine. The files have been scanned from the original flight manuals and retain any colour pages.
