Canadair CE-133 Silver StarT33 Silver Star

The “T-Bird” is a 50’s vintage trainer, and our example served in Moose Jaw and many other stations over its long career. This airplane was built in Canada as a CT-133 and uses a version of the Rolls Royce “Nene” engine.

Hundreds of RCAF pilots trained on T33’s, which was relatively easy to fly and was a stepping stone to higher performance aircraft.

Our “T-Bird” was used for pilot training and as an electronic scoring target in simulated dog-fighting with CF-18’s.
