The Lockheed P-80 Shooting Star was the first US Army Air Force jet fighter to see combat action.  Though initally developed in the 1940's, operational problems delayed deployment of the aircraft until the Korean War as the USAAF F-80.  These aircraft sawP-80 Shooting Star by Mark Karvon action as fighters, air-reconnaisance, and later ground attack aircraft.  They were replaced in the fighter role by the improved F-86 Sabre Jet.  An F-80 is widely credited as the victor in the first jet -vs.- jet engagement when the aircraft flown by 1st Lt. Russell Brown shot down a MIG 15. Mark Karvon's print of this important aircraft is a tribute to the Shooting Star, and the depiction features an aircraft in the markings of 1st Lt. Brown's airplane making a high speed pass over the world's largest compass rose located on Rodgers Dry Lake at Edwards AFB.  You can click on the thumbnail image for a larger view, then click your browser's BACK button to return here.
