Like the T-33, the T-1 SeaStar was born from the success of the Lockheed F-80 Shooting Star jet platform.

There are currently no development or operational history details available for the Lockheed T-1 SeaStar (T2V SeaStar). Rest assured that we are hard at work on adding more information to the Military Factory database so please check back at another time.

Each entry goes through a lengthy research process that produces the final write up. The write up is then complemented by appropriate imagery for the associated text through a lengthy picture hunting process. Statistics are then verified before the entry is completed in our database and posted for review.

For the interim, please consider busying yourself with another section on
