The F-80 Shooting Star was flying in Italy in January 1945 but didn't see combat.

On the 8th of November 1950 a Shooting Star shot down a MiG-15 in what is thought to be the first jet to jet air combat encounter. The first 4 months of the Korean war saw the F-80 bearing the brunt of the combat with over 15,000 sorties being flown.

The trainer version is known as the T-33.

Ready for a formation takeoff. RIGHT: Notice the canopy reflections... the two faint vertical lines. The canopy reflections are excellent and help you keep oriented in padlock view.
