ORIGINAL VINTAGE CARD
LOCKHEED F-80 SHOOTING STAR
The eruption of war in Korea in June 1950 quickly brought jet planes to the scene, and in November the first jet air combat in history took placean American-built F-80 Shooting Star versus a Russian-built Mig fighter. A new era in aerial warfare had begun. The Shooting Star had been born during World War II, but although Lockheed began deliveries of this revolutionary fighter in February 1945, the war ended before it saw action. The F-80 soon became the standard Air Force fighter. Twin air scoops for the jet engine were located in the fuselage just ahead of the wings, and six .50-caliber machine guns were placed in the nose. An Allison engine gave the Shooting Star a top speed of 580 miles an hour and a range of 1,300 miles. While more advanced jets took over the fighter role in Korea, the Shooting Star, equipped with bombs, rockets and napalm fire-bombs, continued to excel as a ground-attack plane.
