Lockheed P-80 Shooting Star, T-33 и T2V/T-1 SeaStar

  Компания "Lockheed" ко времени окончания серийного выпуска построила всего 1732 самолета P-80 Shooting Star (с 1947 года обозначались F-80), хотя более востребован оказался учебно-тренировочный двухместный вариант T-33A. Этот самолет, в целом идентичный F-80, имел удлиненный фюзеляж - чтобы вместить второго летчика с расположением кресел по схеме тандем. T-33A находился в эксплуатации в авиации более чем 30 стран мира. Компания "Lockheed" построила 5691 такую машину, еще 210 самолетов были собраны в Японии компанией "Kawasaki", а компания "Canadair" построила 656 машин - они были оснащены двигателями Rolls-Royce Nene местной сборки и известны под обозначением CL-30 Silver Star. Часть учебно-тренировочных самолетов T-33 оставалась в эксплуатации даже в 2001 году.

  TP-80C (позже TF-80C и T-33A): двухместный учебно-тренировочный самолет TP-80C облетан 22 марта 1948 года, после чего принят на вооружение ВВС США; построено 128 машин
  AT-33A: вариант T-33A для использования в составе небольших ВВС с вооружением для подготовки к применению бортового вооружения и для ведения операций против партизан (повстанцев)
  DT-33A: обозначение самолетов T-33A, переоборудованных для управления беспилотными мишенями
  NT-33A: обозначение самолетов T-33A, переоборудованных для специальных испытаний
  QT-33A: обозначение самолетов T-33A, переоборудованных в радиоуправляемые беспилотные мишени
  RT-33A: вариант самолета AT-33A для разведки (для небольших ВВС); построено 85 машин
  TO-2 (затем TV-2): вариант самолета T-33A для ВМС США
  TV-2D: обозначение самолетов TO-2/TV-2, переоборудованных для управления беспилотными мишенями

Lockheed T-33 is used as a test-bed for guidance systems for supersonic missiles. Electronics, developed by Ryan Aircraft, fit inside standard T-33 tip tank. The system operator gets a fix on a B-47 posing as an enemy aircraft, and a simulated attack is made. All information is telemetered to a ground station.
Mark Hanna familiarises himself with the Old Flying Machine Company’s newly-acquired Lockheed T-33, N33VC, at Duxford on May 4, 1999 while Carl Schofield looks on. Now registered N33VC, the aircraft is better known in its earlier guise as Ormond Haydon-Baillie’s G-OAHB Black Knight.

After a break of forty-two years the patee cross once again appears on a German aeroplane; a lockheed T-33 which was recently handed over to the West German Air Force by the U.S.A.F.

On May 2, 1954 six T-33As arrived on board the cargo ship 'Kingsport Victory' at Barcelona port, from where they were trucked to the city's airport.
Four of the first six T-33s arrived in Talavera on March 24, 1954 are seen here. Note the 'Mary Margaret' legend on the first example 51-17540, later E.15-3.
Several E.15s began operations carrying non­standard markings, including E.15-17 which arrived in Spain in March 1955.
E.15-25 showing the markings carried by Jet School aircraft early in 1959. The 'E' had just disappeared from the fuselage unit code. Scarcity of stencilled instructions is readily discernible.
High over the Guadiana River, E.15-12 during a high-g manoeuvre. Note early EdA and Jet School markings.
Three Jet School E.15s flying in echelon, mid-1958. E.15-4 sports the newly-created Jet School emblem on its tail and the former unit code, which included an unusual 'E'.
High over Extremadura, E.15-16 in pristine condition, revealing a recent overhaul. Readily discernible are the undernose antennae of the AN/ARN-21 TACAN equipment.
After the F-86Fs were phased out of the Jet School, 732 Escuadron received half the E.15s assigned to 731 Escuadron, including ‘E.15-41’.
The refurbishing line at CASA-Sevilla with one of the E.15s sporting unit markings in the '73-6X' range, 73-67 in this case. Photographs of machines carrying these unusual codes are extremely rare even though they were operated at Talavera for more than a year.
On May 21, 1971 SF-5-equipped 21 Ala was formed, keeping six E.15s, including E.15-53, at Son San Juan in the summer of 1977.
E.15-36 of Ala de Caza 4. Note the lack of tail cross, unofficial position of fuselage roundels and lack of wingtip tanks. The nose-band was medium green.
An Ala de Caza 3 T-33A - a rare image. The unit had three on strength for almost a year.
Lt Santaner removes the filler cap of a T-33's wings tanks. Note what appears to be a coloured band around the nose of E.15-15 '73-15', leading to the suspicion that some Jet School T-33s could have sported such markings - perhaps yellow?
Pictured at San Pablo (Sevilla) during an open day held very likely in the summer of 1965, E.15-35 sports unusual unit markings (including orange nose band and a version of the Ala de Caza 5 badge) of the so-called 157 Escuadron de Servicios (157th Service Squadron). The real task of this unit remains unknown to the authors.
Ready to take off from Son San Juan, E.15-59 sporting the colours of the fet School's 731 Escuadron. The photo might have been taken shortly after delivery to the EdA as denoted by the traces of the nose lettering and rear fuselage USAF markings. The pod beneath the mid­fuselage served as a baggage carrier.
E.15-34, in Ala de Caza 1 markings, remained at Manises for many years. It is believed to have been assigned to the unit's 11 Escuadron (red nose-band).
Examples of the second batch of T-33s received by the EdA, probably on the Talavera ramp. These aircraft don’t seem to have ever carried USAF markings other than the tail serial number.

China's museum contains several examples of aircraft that have defected to the People's Republic of China from Taiwan. They include this T-33 with yellow nose and tip tanks and red fin.
An expansion of pilot training requirements in 1980 led to the acquisition of a dozen ex-Armee de l’Air Lockheed T-33As, later augmented by a further eight, and these serve with No 131 (Harrier) Sqn from Tengah, but will eventually be replaced by the S.211.

The ageing RT-33A shares the tactical reconnaissance task with a few RF-5As and is expected to remain in the RTAF inventory for some years.
