Thank you all

Had a hand in designing the T-Bird - back in the '50's Technically, it's a stretched and modified P/F-80 Shooting Star. The T-33 was named the Thunderbird - not Shooting Star. That was the name of its parent - the P/F-80.

Most exciting flight in my Air Force ROTC experience at Cal Berkeley with pilot and instructor Capt. Norman J. Deback

The most exciting experience in my AF ROTC training at Cal Berkeley was a flight with my instructor, Capt. Norman J. Deback.
I also had the thrill of flying back seat in the T-33 during ROTC at U of Puget Sound in 1959. Flew out of McCord AFB down to Portland and tightly circled Mount St. Helens (years before it blew its top off). Got a little stick time, great memory.

Nice shot. We has a sqdrn of T-33's behind our B 25's on the ramp at AAFB in the early '50's.
We all knew for certain 'suck-burn-blow' would never be an enduring propulsion concept!

The beautiful subject aircraft, a Canadair CT-133 'Silver Star', c/n 133452, was built in 1954 for the RCAF at Canadair's Cartierville, Quebec plant. The aircraft is powered by a Rolls Royce Nene 10 centrifugal compressor turbo-jet engine.

Are those fuel tanks at the wing tips?
One of the sweetest flying trainers I ever flew (120 + hrs) during my pilot training at Williams A.F.B. the final trainer before getting Wings and Commission.
Yes those tip tanks were full of fuel at takeoff.
