Tom's T-33 jet

Tom bought an ex-Canadian Lockheed T-33 jet (based on the P-80 Shooting Star) in the early 70's. He was one of the first 6 owners of privately held ex-military jets in the US. It was on the cover of Street Chopper at one point in it's Molly paint. After he sold it it went through a few hands and as of 2008 was in Tennessee. It is currently listed as experimental/.racing and the registration is N72JR. Tom's number was N4TM. The first picture is the jet from when the EAA owned it in 2003 and the second is as it sat in 2008. It is T33-295 RCAF21295 build date of 6.5.54.....and now the AEE jet!
