One of my favorites of the early military jet age, the Lockheed T-33A-5-LO Shooting Star at the National Air and Space Museum Udvar-Hazy Center is an immaculate and utterly gleaming exhibit example. I like the softer lines of it… they remind me of other 1950s industrial design icons – like those from Raymond Loewy, the industrial designer for the famous Greyhound Scenicruiser bus, the Pennsylvania Railroad S1 steam locomotive, the current Air Force One livery, and many others. Truly, the aircraft just glows in the space where they have placed it.
