Lockheed RT-33A

As part of the MDAP-Programma which covered the supply of the T-33A T-Birds also two RT-33A Reconnaissance versions were ordered. After a review only one was actually delivered in 1956 and taken on charge by 42 Squadron at Chièvres. The career of this aircraft was very short as it was returned to the US Air Force a few months later.
So far no pictures are available of this aircraft, all help on this would be much appreciated !
