This work depicts a Lockheed F-94C in full afterburner streaking through the night sky. The F-94, an adaptation of Lockheed T-33, was the USAF’s first all-weather fighter interceptor. Originally designed to fire nose mounted rockets, which proved problematic, specially designed rocket pods were located to the wings. Each pod carried twelve rockets. The F-94C was the only variant that received the name “Starfire”. With the afterburner engaged the Starfire was capable of supersonic in speed in a dive. After a production run of 387 units, the last F-94C was retired from active duty in November 1957
