Lockheed was founded in and later merged with Martin Marietta to form Lockheed Martin in In June , this assembly line was reconfigured into a mechanized line, which more than doubled the rate of production.
The transition to the new system was accomplished in only eight days. During this time production never stopped. It was continued outdoors. The Lockheed U-2 , which first flew in , provided intelligence on Soviet bloc countries. Clarence Leonard "Kelly" Johnson was an American aeronautical and systems engineer. He is recognized for his contributions to a series of important aircraft designs, most notably the Lockheed U-2 and SR Blackbird.

A monoplane is a fixed-wing aircraft with a single main wing plane, in contrast to a biplane or other multiplane, each of which has multiple planes. Supermarine Spitfire monoplane. Low wing on a Curtiss P The F flew both air-to-air and air-to-ground sorties, claiming several aerial victories against North Korean Yak-9s and Ils.
On 8 November , the first American claim for a jet-versus-jet aerial kill was made when Lieutenant Russell J. Brown, flying an F, reported that he shot down a MiG The MiGs incorporated German research that showed that swept wings delayed the onset of compressibility problems, and enabled speeds much closer to the speed of sound.
Fs were soon replaced in the air superiority role by the North American F Sabre, which had been delayed to also incorporate swept wings into an improved straight-winged naval FJ-1 Fury. However, F pilots still claimed to have destroyed a total of six MiGs in aerial combat. When sufficient Sabres were in operation, the Shooting Star flew exclusively ground-attack missions, and were also used for advanced flight training duties and air defense in Japan.
By the end of hostilities, the only Fs still flying in Korea were photo-reconnaissance variants. Loring, Jr. Lockheed also produced a two-seat trainer variant with a longer fuselage, the T , which remained in production until and was produced under license in Japan and Canada.
The trainer was used by more than 20 different countries. A total of 6, Ts were built and some are still flying. Two TFCs were modified as prototypes for the F Starfire , an all-weather fighter produced in three variants. Data from Quest for Performance . From Infogalactic: the planetary knowledge core.

London: Phoebus, USAF and USN versions of the T soldiered on into the s and s with USAF and USN as utility aircraft and proficiency trainers, with some of the former USN aircraft being expended as full-scale aerial targets for air-to-air missile tests from naval aircraft and surface-to-air missile tests from naval vessels. Some Ts retained two machine guns for gunnery training, and in some countries, the T was even used in combat: the Cuban Air Force used them during the Bay of Pigs Invasion , scoring several kills.
The RTA version, reconnaissance aircraft produced primarily for use by foreign countries, had a camera installed in the nose and additional equipment in the rear cockpit. Ts continued to fly as currency trainers, drone towing, combat and tactical simulation training, "hack" aircraft, electronic countermeasures, and warfare training and test platforms right into the s. The T has served with over 30 nations and continues to operate as a trainer in smaller air forces. Other operators included Brazil , Turkey , and Thailand , which used the T extensively.
In the s, an attempt was made to modify and modernize the T as the Boeing Skyfox , but a lack of orders led to the project's cancellation. New avionics were installed, and detailed inspection and renewal of the fuselage and wings were performed. Most of the aircraft returned in early and remained operational until the type was officially retired on 31 July A limited number of Ts have been owned privately, with two used by Boeing as chase aircraft.
