T-33 Acemaker at SF Fleetweek 2009

Photo Gallery

The T-33 Ace Maker made an appearance for the San Francisco Fleet Week air show. Got some nice shots of it on Sunday, as he made a close pass and also with the City in the background.

Gregory Colyer flies the T-33 'Acemaker' in a unique San Francisco shot with the Palace of Fine Arts.

Here's the T-33 Shooting Star as it flies past Fort Mason and Pacific Heights.

A nice fast pass at around 400kt, close too!

The T-33 is the trainer version of the Lockheed P-80/F-80. Unlike the jets which followed, it had straight, not swept wings.

Here he is flying past Fisherman's Wharf, and the submarine USS Pampanito.

Overcast skies restricted Greg's routine on Sunday, but got some nice shots with the city like this one!
