Lockheed T-33 Shooting Star

Our planes are a major attraction at Aviation Cadet World. We’ve worked hard to provide a final resting place for many of these retired air crafts. We want them to be enjoyed by those who once flew them and generations to come.

T-33 - 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. This T-Bird is on loan from the National Naval Aviation Museum. [Source: Wikipedia]

This is an interactive tour, not a typical “museum” tour. To the best of our knowledge there is nothing like this attraction anywhere else. You've got to see it to believe it! The many who have taken this tour before were 100% satisfied. All, women, men and children, had a great time.
The cost of admission is: $15:00 for adults, $7.00 children 6-12, younger, free. Please call now, as we have limited availability for each tour. Which includes touring the eureka railroad museum and a ride on the eureka narrow gauge train during normal season.
A new attraction is the "silver wings chapel". We perform a show for groups of 20-100. The show title is "meet the master" and is one hour long. Please call for reservations and times. vimeo.com/138346047
