The T-33 two-seat trainer was a development of the F-80.  The T-33 first flew in 1948.  Basically an F-80 with a lengthened fuselage to fit a second seat in tandem, the T-33 served with more than 20 air forces.  Over 5,600 were built by Lockheed and over 800 by Kawasaki and Canadair.

Lockheed further modified the T-33 (TV-2) to create the T2V Seastar.
