Comments:
The T-33 has trained more pilots in more Western countries than any other trainer. The T-33 was developed from a P-80C Shooting Star taken from the production line and modified with a additional fuselage section for an additional seat. After 50 years the T-33 is still in service with some Third World countries and is a popular warbird.
