Lockheed T-33 "T-Bird"

What:

A Lockheed T-33 trainer jet "flies" over the Annapolis Basin.

 

Where:

Digby

Nova Scotia, Canada

 

About:

OK, it didn't really fly over the basin:-)

On my way to Digby a couple weeks ago I stopped at the Greenwood Forces base where they have a few old planes on display. This old training jet is at the entrance on a 20 foot pole. There is a symbol on the back the commemorates the 50th year of service of these jets in our air-force. This is our most modern plane! :-)

Anyway, the background is a shot of the entrance to the Annapolis Basin shot from the same spot as the shot below except facing the other way.

I wanted to play around a bit and both shots were rather boring on their own so I thought I'd give this a try.

 

T-Bird info from Wikipedia:

The Lockheed T-33 Shooting Star is an American-built jet trainer aircraft. It was produced by Lockheed and made its first flight in 1948, piloted by Tony LeVier. The T-33 was developed from the Lockheed P-80/F-80 starting as TP-80C/TF-80C in development, then designated T-33A. It was used by the U.S. Navy initially as TO-2 then TV-2, and after 1962, T-33B. Despite its vintage, the venerable T-33 still remains in service worldwide.
