Photo Comment

Ex USAF 53-3160. Converted from C-119G by the fitment of two under-wing auxiliary General Electric J85 jet engines prior to delivery to Ethiopia under the Mutual Assistance Program (MAP) late 1971 / early 1972. Noted derelict at Debre Zeyit (now known as Bishoftu), Ethiopia in 1996. No longer visible on Google Earth, so presumed scrapped. The two T-33A are 213 (ex M-11) and 214 (ex M-58) and were on delivery, supported by the C-119K.
