Thanks for the information, Keith. I don't have any photos of 84, but part of it shows up in the background of a photo of another aircraft. It was bare metal then too. I kind of like the old non-military paint schemes like this one.

This was taken in the much lamented days when you could actually go out on airport ramps and hangar areas. Sigh!  Cry

It moves! I am told this is the first time this airplane has moved under its own power in several years. This is actually a Canadair version, although it is painted in USAF Thunderbirds colors. Unfortunately, they just taxied it to a runup area, with the ladder attached, and ran up the engine a few times and then took it back to its parking spot. Hopefully it will fly soon.

Is the Ace Maker's pilot a retired General?  I noticed the single star at the root of the tail and thought that might be what it means.  Anyone know the pilot?  These are all very nice shots of the T-33A

No, Acemaker's Pilot is not a retired General.  Not even retired military.
But he did serve in the Army for 4-5 years.  He's an Air Traffic Controller by profession.
