Having graduated from USAF pilot training, I believe this aircraft is a T-33. All the F-80's I know of were single seat--did not have the long canopy of this a/c, and the tip tanks were under-slung--not mid mounted as these. Brought my grandson you your beautiful museum this past summer--it was very impressive. Thank you. go.
