Photo Comment

Developed from the T-33 Shooting Star the F-94 was the first US all-weather jet interceptor and the first US production jet to have an afterburner. Lockheed produced 853 F-94s of 110 were the A-version and this one was retired directly from active service to arrive at the National Museum of the USAF during May 1957.
