Lockheed F-94C Starfire
@Peterson Air and Space Museum, Peterson AFB, Colorado Springs, CO
Thanks to my brother-in-law, we got onto Peterson AFB for a New Year’s Day photo mission under gorgeous weather conditions. The museum has a small but wonderful collection of Cold War jet aircraft. It’s a pity that the public is unable to enjoy this, but that is also why these outdoor static displays can remain free of vandalism. The Lockheed F-94 Starfire was the United States Air Force’s first jet all-weather interceptor aircraft. With the C-version the guns were removed and replaced with an all-rocket armament consisting of 24 unguided rockets. The F-94C was the only variant to be officially named Starfire.
