This T-33 was previously 53-5628 as part of the Mutual Defense Assistance Program (MDAP). It flew with the Aufklärungsgeschwader 51 (Reconnaissance Squadron 51) and Jagdbombergeschwader 34 (Fighter Bomber Squadron 34). After decomissioning it joined the Deutsches Museum in 1974 and after restoration by the Luftwaffenversorgungsregiment 1 (Air Force Supply Regiment 1) in Erding it is now on display at Flugwerft Schleissheim.
'The remains of a T-33 jet trainer after It crashed at Tye base Monday morning. The pilot, Jacques Chataigner, 20, climbed out unhurt.' Tye was renamed Dyess AFB in 1956. Aircraft belonged to the 3560th Pilot Training Wing at Webb AFB. Reports that this T-33 crashed at Webb in 1958 must be wrong. Photo from: Hardin-Simmons University / The Portal to Texas History
