Lockheed TO-1/TV-1 Shooting Star (Navy) series






Last updated on: February 23, 2017

This page is just for the US Navy Shooting Stars that received Bureau Numbers. The rest that went to the USAF and have Serial Numbers have their own page right here.

This is a work in progress and any help would be appreciated. Information on these planes is rather difficult to locate online and this work will remain incomplete unless you the readers offer to help me. Please feel free to pass along any information that you might have.

At the end of this page is a list of people who have graciously offered their help. Thank you all very much!
