Long Description:
Some sources list the serial number as #133130 but the number on the tail is definitely 21130

This is from the Canadian Air Force website. (visit link)
In March 1948, the first Lockheed-built T-33 Silver Star took to the air, ushering in a long and brilliant career for what has commonly become known as the T-Bird - the world's first purpose-built jet trainer. Canada is one of the last NATO countries which continues to fly the T-Bird under his Canadian Forces designation: CT-133. The fleet has been officially retired in 2001 except for 4 CT133s which continue to fly at AETE Cold Lake, Alberta.
